@icedquinn I'd like to see Hindi, and at least one major African language added next. It's great that Vosk is already supporting a number of languages that aren't from western European.

@strypey i just need an english one that actually works :blobcatoh:

i haven't seen how they built this. is it one of those fancy AI thingers?
@strypey https://alphacephei.com/vosk/models.html looks like it.

good thing with these is you really just need a collection of speakers to read words and send you wavs. usually there's just no dataset available to work with, so the language doesn't get supported.

i kind of wish voiceloop's architecture showed up in more places, but i guess it wasn't very influential.
@strypey Wow thats great news 😍 So there is a platform which apps could use. Dear #frediverse #fdroid people think of neat ideas.

Sill beginner one from me, how about we tell a word and it gives out the dictionary meaning? 💛
@pavi @strypey not free/libre/open source but an Indian academic effort to get the intonation right for Indian languages https://www.cse.iitm.ac.in/~hema/
