GStreamer DeepSpeech Plugin
NOTE: This plugin is now deprecated in favour of the coqui-stt branch in gst-plugins-bad: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/philn/gstreamer/-/tree/coqui-stt/subprojects/gst-plugins-bad/ext/coqui
This project provides a GStreamer element which can be placed into an audio pipeline, it will then report any recognised speech via bus messages. It automatically segments audio based on configurable silence thresholds making it suitable for continuous dictation.
Here’s a couple of example pipelines using gst-launch.
To perform speech recognition on a file, printing all bus messages to the terminal:
gst-launch-1.0 -m filesrc location=/path/to/file.ogg ! decodebin ! audioconvert ! audiorate ! audioresample ! deepspeech ! fakesink
To perform speech recognition on audio recorded from the default system microphone, with changes to the silence thresholds:
gst-launch-1.0 -m pulsesrc ! audioconvert ! audiorate ! audioresample ! deepspeech silence-threshold=0.3 silence-length=20 ! fakesink
