"We have recently released open source speech recognition library #Vosk 9 for Android ... It doesn’t require internet connection and Google services ... Supports 9 languages - English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Turkish, Vietnamese. More to come."
@icedquinn I'd like to see Hindi, and at least one major African language added next. It's great that Vosk is already supporting a number of languages that aren't from western European.
i haven't seen how they built this. is it one of those fancy AI thingers?
good thing with these is you really just need a collection of speakers to read words and send you wavs. usually there's just no dataset available to work with, so the language doesn't get supported.
i kind of wish voiceloop's architecture showed up in more places, but i guess it wasn't very influential.
