Description

Silero Models: pre-trained enterprise-grade STT / TTS models and benchmarks.

Enterprise-grade STT made refreshingly simple (seriously, see benchmarks). We provide quality comparable to Google's STT (and sometimes even better) and we are not Google.

As a bonus:

No Kaldi; No compilation; No 20-step instructions;

Also we have published TTS models that satisfy the following criteria:

One-line usage; A large library of voices; A fully end-to-end pipeline; Naturally sounding speech; No GPU or training required; Minimalism and lack of dependencies; Faster than real-time on one CPU thread (!!!); Support for 16kHz and 8kHz out of the box;

Programming language: Jupyter Notebook

Silero Models: pre-trained enterprise-grade STT / TTS models and benchmarks.

Enterprise-grade STT made refreshingly simple (seriously, see benchmarks). We provide quality comparable to Google's STT (and sometimes even better) and we are not Google.

As a bonus:

  • No Kaldi;
  • No compilation;
  • No 20-step instructions;

Also we have published TTS models that satisfy the following criteria:

  • One-line usage;
  • A large library of voices;
  • A fully end-to-end pipeline;
  • Natural-sounding speech;
  • No GPU or training required;
  • Minimalism and lack of dependencies;
  • Faster than real-time on one CPU thread (!!!);
  • Support for 16kHz and 8kHz out of the box;

Also we have published a model for text repunctuation and recapitalization that:

  • Inserts capital letters and basic punctuation marks, e.g., dots, commas, hyphens, question marks, exclamation points, and dashes (for Russian);
  • Works for 4 languages (Russian, English, German, and Spanish) and can be extended;
  • Domain-agnostic by design and not based on any hard-coded rules;
  • Has non-trivial metrics and succeeds in the task of improving text readability;

Installation and Basics

You can basically use our models in 3 flavours:

  • Via PyTorch Hub: torch.hub.load();
  • Via pip: pip install silero and then import silero;
  • Via caching the required models and utils manually and modifying if necessary;

Models are downloaded on demand both by pip and PyTorch Hub. If you need caching, do it manually or via invoking a necessary model once (it will be downloaded to a cache folder). Please see these docs for more information.

PyTorch Hub and pip package are based on the same code. All of the torch.hub.load examples can be used with the pip package via this basic change:

# before
torch.hub.load(repo_or_dir='snakers4/silero-models',
               model='silero_stt',  # or silero_tts or silero_te
               **kwargs)

# after
from silero import silero_stt, silero_tts, silero_te
silero_stt(**kwargs)

Speech-To-Text

All of the provided models are listed in the models.yml file. Any metadata and newer versions will be added there.

Dependencies

  • All examples:
    • torch, 1.8+ (used to clone the repo in TensorFlow and ONNX examples), breaking changes for versions older than 1.6
    • torchaudio, latest version bound to PyTorch should just work
    • omegaconf, latest should just work
  • Additional dependencies for ONNX examples:
    • onnx, latest should just work
    • onnxruntime, latest should just work
  • Additional for TensorFlow examples:
    • tensorflow, latest should just work
    • tensorflow_hub, latest should just work

Please see the provided Colab for details for each example below. All examples are maintained to work with the latest major packaged versions of the installed libraries.

Dependencies

Basic dependencies for Colab examples:

  • torch, 1.10+;
  • torchaudio, latest version bound to PyTorch should work (required only because models are hosted together with STT, not required for work);
  • omegaconf, latest (can be removed as well, if you do not load all of the configs);

Indic languages

Example

(!!!) All input sentences should be romanized to ISO format using aksharamukha. An example for hindi:

# V3
import torch
from aksharamukha import transliterate

# Loading model
model, example_text = torch.hub.load(repo_or_dir='snakers4/silero-models',
                                     model='silero_tts',
                                     language='indic',
                                     speaker='v3_indic')

orig_text = "प्रसिद्द कबीर अध्येता, पुरुषोत्तम अग्रवाल का यह शोध आलेख, उस रामानंद की खोज करता है"
roman_text = transliterate.process('Devanagari', 'ISO', orig_text)
print(roman_text)

audio = model.apply_tts(roman_text,
                        speaker='hindi_male')
