A very simple server based on Vosk-API.
There are four implementations for different protocol - websocket, grpc, mqtt, webrtc.
Start the server
docker run -d -p 2700:2700 alphacep/kaldi-en:latest
There are kaldi-en, kaldi-cn, kaldi-ru, kaldi-fr, kaldi-de and other images on Docker Hub.
You can also run the docker with your own model if you want to replace the default model by binding your local model folder to the model folder inside the docker. It will even work for a different language.
docker run -d -p 2700:2700 -v /opt/model:/opt/vosk-model-en/model alphacep/kaldi-en:latest
To test the server run the example script
git clone https://github.com/alphacep/vosk-server cd vosk-server/websocket ./test.py test.wav
You can try with any wav file which has proper format - 16bit mono PCM. Other formats has to be converted before decoding. See also test_ffmpeg.py.
Some servers use huge carpa models for best accuracy. To load them in memory you need about 16Gb of memory or even more. Make sure you have enough memory on your server.
In case of problems try to run server manually from docker prompt and see what happens:
$ sudo docker run -it -p 2700:2700 alphacep/kaldi-en:latest /bin/bash root@a9e0db45a54b:/opt/vosk-server/websocket# python3 ./asr_server.py /opt/vosk-model-en/model LOG ([5.5.643~1-7e185]:ConfigureV2():src/model.cc:138) Decoding params beam=13 max-active=7000 lattice-beam=6 ...
Testing with microphone
You would need to install the sounddevice pip package:
pip3 install sounddevice
To test with a microphone, run
./test_microphone.py -u ws://localhost:2700
The recognized data will be printed on stdout.
