The Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit release 2020 r1 includes a new demo for speech recognition.
This release provides a set of libraries and demos to demonstrate end-to-end speech recognition. OpenVINO™ also provides new acoustic and language models to work with these demos. A full end-to-end speech processing scenario is covered and demonstrated by libraries and tools distributed with OpenVINO™.
The Speech Library wraps all of the processing blocks and exposes a simple API. The library takes care of proper initialization and data passing between all the components in the pipeline.
Speech Library contains:
- Two core binary libraries, Intel® Feature Extraction library and Intel® Speech Decoder (in lib dir),
- Speech library source code (in the src dir),
- Speech library header files (in the include dir). The library API is in the file speech_library.h. To compile the libraries, please run a script (.sh file) in the root directory of the speech libraries and demos, or run the demonstration script (<INSTALL_DIR>/deployment_tools/demo/speech_recogintion.sh).
There is a demo in the following directory:
This name of the demo is to run is:
This demo runs the following:
- Initializes the environment
- Downloads speech models (approx 10 minutes depending on your network)
- Models and size
The demo calls on the speech recognition models set built using Kaldi* s5 NNET1 recipe. The files are located at:
This article offers guidance to run the speech demo available in 2020 r1 of Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit.
- Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit 2020 r1 installed
- Ubuntu* 18.04 (kernel 5+)
- Audio capabilities
- Familiarity with Linux* commands
Speech recognition models set is built using Kaldi s5 NNET1 recipe.
Run the demo
To run the demo change directory to the demo directory by running the command:
Run the script for the speech recognition demo:
Python run results
After the demo completed successfully, some python scripts ran and this tool displayed for use.
