Taking Mozilla’s DeepSpeech for a spin

Dec 1st, 2017

Speech-to-text, eh? I wanted to convert episodes of my favorite podcast so their invaluable content is searchable. I’m moderately excited with the results but I’d like to document the effort nonetheless. DeepSpeech First thought – what open-source packages exist out there?
