Speech Recognition: Conformer
Conformer-CTC (around 120M parameters) is trained on ASRSet with over 4280 hours of Japanese(ja-JP)-English(en-JP) code switch speech. The model transcribes speech in Japanese and English alphabet(lower and upper case) along with spaces and punctuations.
Conformer-CTC  model is a non-autoregressive variant of Conformer model  for Automatic Speech Recognition which uses CTC loss/decoding instead of Transducer. You may find more info on the detail of this model here: Conformer-CTC Model.
The model was trained on various proprietary and open-source datasets. These datasets include variety of accents, domain specific data for various domains, spontaneous speech and dialogue, all of which contribute to the model’s accuracy. This model delivers WER that is better than or comparable to popular alternate Speech to Text solutions for a range of domains and use cases.
How to Use this Model
