Getting word timestamps in python

Hi all,

I have been trying to get word timestamps in the python package version of deepspeech. I have been able to get metadata but that only indicates the timestamp of each character.

However you can using --json or -e to get the timestamps of every word when using the command line binaries. Is there anyway to do this for the python version? Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried looking at the source code of the python code?

I am trying to use deepspeech for web application, and I want to get speech to text with timestamp of every word spoken.
Can you please direct me to some working sample to do the same?

Thanks very much!
