Run the script to download and process hi-mia dataset in order to generate files in the supported format of nemo_asr. You should set the data folder of hi-mia using --data_root. These scripts are present in <nemo_root>/scripts

python --data_root=<data directory>

After download and conversion, your data folder should contain directories with following set of files as:

  • data/<set>/train.json

  • data/<set>/dev.json

  • data/<set>/{set}_all.json

  • data/<set>/utt2spk

All-other Datasets#

These methods can be applied to any dataset to get similar training or inference manifest files. script in $<NeMo_root>/scripts/speaker_tasks/ folder generates manifest file from a text file containing paths to audio files.

sample filelist.txt file contents:


This list file is used to generate manifest file. This script has optional arguments to split the whole manifest file in to train and dev and also segment audio files to smaller segments for robust training (for testing, we don’t need to create segments for each utterance).

sample usage:

python --filelist=filelist.txt --id=-3 --out=speaker_manifest.json

This would create a manifest containing file contents as shown below: .. code-block:: json

{“audio_filepath”: “/data/datasets/voxceleb/data/dev/aac_wav/id00179/Q3G6nMr1ji0/00086.wav”, “offset”: 0, “duration”: 4.16, “label”: “id00179”} {“audio_filepath”: “/data/datasets/voxceleb/data/dev/aac_wav/id00806/VjpQLxHQQe4/00302.wav”, “offset”: 0, “duration”: 12.288, “label”: “id00806”} {“audio_filepath”: “/data/datasets/voxceleb/data/dev/aac_wav/id01510/k2tzXQXvNPU/00132.wav”, “offset”: 0, “duration”: 4.608, “label”: “id01510”}

For other optional arguments like splitting manifest file to train and dev and for creating segements from each utterance refer to the arguments described in the script.

Tarred Datasets#

Similarly to ASR, you can tar your audio files and use ASR Dataset class TarredAudioToSpeechLabelDataset (corresponding to the AudioToSpeechLabelDataset) for this case.

If you want to use tarred dataset, have a look at ASR Tarred Datasets.
