Speech Note

Experimental app for note taking with speech to text.

>> App does not work Jolla Tablet <<

Speech Note converts speech to text using DeepSpeech library and language models. All voice processing is entirely done locally on the device. Internet connection is only required for model download during app initial configuration. Speech Note respects your privacy and provides truly offline speech-to-text capability.

DeepSpeech models for particular language can be downloaded directly from the app. Following models are currently configured for download:

  • English (en) ~ 954 MB
  • German (de) ~ 311 MB
  • Spanish (es) ~ 311 MB
  • French (fr) ~ 288 MB
  • Italian (it) ~ 52 MB
  • Polish (pl) ~ 49 MB
  • Chinese (zh-CN) ~ 109 MB

English and Chinese models are from DeepSpeech's GitHub page and other models are from Scribosermo project.

The quality of speech recognition strongly depends on language model. In general it is not perfect but for some languages is surprisingly fine.

Any comments, ideas, issue reports are highly appreciated.
