Italian (italiano)

Italian is a Romance language that originated in Italy and is now spoken by millions of people worldwide. It belongs to the Indo-European language family and is closely related to other Romance languages such as Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Italian has a rich cultural heritage and is known for its musicality and expressive gestures. It uses the Latin alphabet and features distinctive phonetic properties, including double consonants and vowel lengthening.

MAI Female Dataset

The MAI Female dataset is a subset of the MAI dataset that includes speech recordings from female speakers. It can be used for specific research or applications that require female voice data.

VITS (VQ-VAE-Transformer)

VITS, also known as VQ-VAE-Transformer, is an advanced technique used for training audio models. It combines different components to create powerful models that can understand and generate human-like speech. VITS works by breaking down audio into tiny pieces called vectors, which are like puzzle pieces that represent different parts of the sound. These vectors are then put together using a special algorithm that helps the model learn patterns and understand the structure of the audio. It’s similar to how we put together jigsaw puzzles to form a complete picture. With VITS, the model can not only recognize and understand different speech sounds but also generate new sounds that sound very similar to human speech. This technology has a wide range of applications, from creating realistic voice assistants to helping people with speech impairments communicate more effectively.
