How long does it take to train the model with Common voice training set?

I use one GPU (Tesla, 12G) to train the model and I have trained the model with default parameters for 11 days, but the training progress(75 epoch) have not finished.
I have used “ctrl + c” to interrupt the training process for 2 times and continued the training process with the same checkpoint_dir. I wander whether my configuration or my operation is wrong, so the program will take much time training.

Training on our cluster (16 GPUs TITAN X, 12G) takes severals hours for each epoch, so full Common Voice with just one GPU is not unlikely to take a long time. How much epochs have you completed over 11 days ? Maybe not even one ? Might not be that surprising.

I find that some of the data show in the “train-other.csv” file are defective. For example, the transcript of the data is blank.

Besides, when I add “–display_step 1” to my command, the training process will be very slow. I am very curious about this.

There’s nothing to be curious about, display_step computes WER, which is very intensive to compute.

Is there some ways that make the program not compute the WER report after finishing the training process?
