VOSK Speech Recognition Toolkit

VOSK is an open-source offline speech recognition API/toolkit. VOSK supports speech recognition in 17 languages and has a variety of models available and interfaces for different programming languages. This test profile times the speech-to-text process for a roughly three minute audio recording.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark vosk.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

VOSK Speech Recognition Toolkit 0.3.21

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 438 public results since 27 April 2021 with the latest data as of 7 June 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

No, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does not generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
