This plugin allows you to recognize speech in 99 languages, just by adding one component to your blueprint, without relying on any separate servers or subscriptions.


The machine learning model used in this plugin is based on OpenAI's Whisper, but has been optimized to run on the ONNX Runtime for best performance and to minimize dependencies.


Accuracy varies for each supported language. See the original paper for the accuracy of supported languages.
