Run time and cost

This model runs on Nvidia T4 GPU hardware. Predictions typically complete within 4 minutes. The predict time for this model varies significantly based on the inputs.


Model Information

WhisperX provides fast automatic speech recognition (70x realtime with large-v2) with word-level timestamps and speaker diarization.

Whisper is an ASR model developed by OpenAI, trained on a large dataset of diverse audio. Whilst it does produces highly accurate transcriptions, the corresponding timestamps are at the utterance-level, not per word, and can be inaccurate by several seconds. OpenAI’s whisper does not natively support batching, but WhisperX does.

This implementation of WhisperX supports transcription of all supported Whisper languages, and alignment of English audio. WhisperX supports alignment of multiple languages, English is the only alignment supported at present for transcription speed.

For more information about WhisperX, including implementation details, see the WhisperX github repo.
