I want to use deepSpeech to type some of my emails. I’m super excited about DeepSpeech project as an alternative to the Google voice typing and voice transcription service. Been a Mozilla fan forever since before firefox 1.0 and I’m so happy Mozilla worked on DeepSpeech. Such an important project for decentralised internet and privacy.
It’s such a time saver and i love the transcription feature and am looking at having the same but using DeepSpeech
So far I followed instructions in this video and tweaked them to come up with this list of commands on linux ubuntu 20.04:
pip install deepspeech git clone https://github.com/mozilla/DeepSpeech-examples.git DeepSpeech-examples git clone https://github.com/mozilla/DeepSpeech.git DeepSpeech cp DeepSpeech-examples/mic_vad_streaming/ DeepSpeech/ -R cd DeepSpeech cd mic_vad_streaming/ pip install -r requirements.txt sudo apt-get install python3-pyaudio pip install webrtcvad pip install halo pip install scipy python3 mic_vad_streaming.py -m ../../deepspeech-0.8.2-models.pbmm -s ../../deepspeech-0.8.2-models.scorer
And after talking I can see the text in the terminal! Amazing!
Now i’d like to ideally have a feature to activate it within the browser. Do I maybe need to create a Firefox extension to get the speech to text and insert it in the TEXTAREA in the web pages I use?
Thanks for your help and any insights, maybe this already exists?
