Hi everyone. We have recently released open source speech recognition library Vosk for Android which might be interesting to F-Droid community. You can use it for game development, smart house, smart car and many other applications. It doesn’t require internet connection and Google services.
The best things in Vosk are:
- Supports 9 languages - English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Turkish, Vietnamese. More to come.
- Works offline, even on lightweight devices - Android, iOS, RPi
- Portable per-language models are only 50Mb each, but there are much bigger server models available.
- Provides streaming API for the best user experience (unlike popular speech-recognition python packages)
- Allows quick reconfiguration of vocabulary for best accuracy.
- Supports speaker identification beside simple speech recognition.
