Python package for AssemblyAI

Project description


Transcribe audio into text. Create custom language models for higher accuracy.


import assemblyai

aai = assemblyai.Client(token='your-secret-token')

transcript = aai.transcribe('')

while transcript.status is not 'completed':
    transcript = transcript.get()

text = transcript.text

Transcripts take about half the duration of the audio to complete.

Custom language models

The quickstart example transcribes audio using a generic English language model.

In order to retain accuracy with unique word sets, create a custom language model.

For this example we'll train a new model using Pokemon characters from Wikipedia.

import assemblyai
import wikipedia

aai = assemblyai.Client(token='your-secret-token')

phrases ="Pokemon characters").content.split('. ')

model = aai.train(phrases)

transcript = aai.transcribe('', model=model)

while transcript.status is not 'completed':
    transcript = transcript.get()

text = transcript.text

Initially, models take six minutes to train, but afterwords they can be invoked by ID.
