FunASR: A Fundamental End-to-End Speech Recognition Toolkit

FunASR hopes to build a bridge between academic research and industrial applications on speech recognition. By supporting the training & finetuning of the industrial-grade speech recognition model, researchers and developers can conduct research and production of speech recognition models more conveniently, and promote the development of speech recognition ecology. ASR for Fun!

  • FunASR is a fundamental speech recognition toolkit that offers a variety of features, including speech recognition (ASR), Voice Activity Detection (VAD), Punctuation Restoration, Language Models, Speaker Verification, Speaker Diarization and multi-talker ASR. FunASR provides convenient scripts and tutorials, supporting inference and fine-tuning of pre-trained models.
  • We have released a vast collection of academic and industrial pretrained models on the ModelScope and huggingface, which can be accessed through our Model Zoo. The representative Paraformer-large, a non-autoregressive end-to-end speech recognition model, has the advantages of high accuracy, high efficiency, and convenient deployment, supporting the rapid construction of speech recognition services. For more details on service deployment, please refer to the service deployment document.

Model Zoo

FunASR has open-sourced a large number of pre-trained models on industrial data. You are free to use, copy, modify, and share FunASR models under the Model License Agreement. Below are some representative models, for more models please refer to the Model Zoo.

Quick Start

Quick start for new users(tutorial

FunASR supports inference and fine-tuning of models trained on industrial data for tens of thousands of hours. For more details, please refer to modelscope_egs. It also supports training and fine-tuning of models on academic standard datasets. For more information, please refer to egs.

Below is a quick start tutorial. Test audio files (Mandarin, English).

Command-line usage

funasr --model paraformer-zh asr_example_zh.wav

Notes: Support recognition of single audio file, as well as file list in Kaldi-style wav.scp format: wav_id wav_pat

Speech Recognition (Non-streaming)

from funasr import infer

p = infer(model="paraformer-zh", vad_model="fsmn-vad", punc_model="ct-punc", model_hub="ms")

res = p("asr_example_zh.wav", batch_size_token=5000)

Note: model_hub: represents the model repository, ms stands for selecting ModelScope download, hf stands for selecting Huggingface download.

Speech Recognition (Streaming)

from funasr import infer

p = infer(model="paraformer-zh-streaming", model_hub="ms")

chunk_size = [0, 10, 5] #[0, 10, 5] 600ms, [0, 8, 4] 480ms
param_dict = {"cache": dict(), "is_final": False, "chunk_size": chunk_size, "encoder_chunk_look_back": 4, "decoder_chunk_look_back": 1}

import torchaudio
speech = torchaudio.load("asr_example_zh.wav")[0][0]
speech_length = speech.shape[0]

stride_size = chunk_size[1] * 960
sample_offset = 0
for sample_offset in range(0, speech_length, min(stride_size, speech_length - sample_offset)):
    param_dict["is_final"] = True if sample_offset + stride_size >= speech_length - 1 else False
    input = speech[sample_offset: sample_offset + stride_size]
    rec_result = p(input=input, param_dict=param_dict)

Note: chunk_size is the configuration for streaming latency. [0,10,5] indicates that the real-time display granularity is 10*60=600ms, and the lookahead information is 5*60=300ms. Each inference input is 600ms (sample points are 16000*0.6=960), and the output is the corresponding text. For the last speech segment input, is_final=True needs to be set to force the output of the last word.

Quick start for new users can be found in docs
