The Baker dataset is a collection of speech data consisting of various speakers and sentences. It is commonly used for training and evaluating speech recognition models.
Tacotron 2 DDC
Tacotron 2 is an exciting technology used for training audio models, specifically for text-to-speech synthesis. It’s like having a virtual voice that can read text aloud in a natural and human-like manner. Tacotron 2 uses deep learning algorithms to learn the patterns and nuances of human speech from large amounts of training data. It takes text as input and converts it into speech by generating a corresponding sequence of audio signals. The model learns how to pronounce words, intonations, and even subtle details like pauses and inflections, making the synthesized speech sound remarkably natural. Tacotron 2 has various applications, including creating voice-overs for videos, aiding individuals with speech disabilities, and even personalizing virtual assistants to have unique and expressive voices. Tacotron 2 with Double Decoder Consistency (DDC) is an advanced TTS model that addresses attention alignment issues during inference. It uses two decoders with different reduction factors to improve alignment performance. DDC enhances Tacotron 2’s architecture, which includes an encoder, attention module, decoder, and Postnet. By measuring consistency between the decoders, DDC mitigates attention problems caused by out-of-domain words or long input texts. It provides more accurate and natural-sounding speech synthesis.
