This paper presents work in progress for the creation of a Large Vocabulary Automatic Speech Recogniser for Italian using NVIDIA NeMo. Thanks to this package, we were able to build a reliable recogniser for adults' speech by fine tuning the English model provided by NVIDIA and rescoring it with powerful neural language models, obtaining very good performances. The lack of a standard, reliable and publicy available baseline for Italian motivated this work.

Abstract

This paper presents work in progress for the creation of a Large Vocabulary Automatic Speech Recogniser for Italian using NVIDIA NeMo. Thanks to this package, we were able to build a reliable recogniser for adults' speech by fine tuning the English model provided by NVIDIA and rescoring it with powerful neural language models, obtaining very good performances. The lack of a standard, reliable and publicy available baseline for Italian motivated this work.
