Can anyone recommend speech recognition free/libre software? @wgahnagl and I are looking for a tool to make transcriptions of our podcast. I'll take "libre tool that mostly works but needs a human to check the output" over "reliable proprietary tool". Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
I'm inexperienced here but also found the article @jump_spider already linked in his response here:
Please let us know whether any of these, or something else, worked 🙂
This is a recurring discussion, which we often approach from the adjacent can-we-self-host-Mycroft-yet direction
One thing I did stumble across is that this
is in Ubuntu repos. (yes, the Tcl/Tk version mostly still works. No sign of the GTK version.)
I thought Mozilla had something, but they only have DeepSpeech, which is an engine that uses their Common Voice project, so not exactly a ready to go piece of software. I found https://www.goodfirms.co/blog/best-free-open-source-speech-recognition-software while trying to remember what Mozilla has
@vecna @wgahnagl here’s what I tried and it didn’t work, with examples: https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2019-10-15_Speech_to_text_using_Pocketsphinx%21
