This release provides new Improved language packs for all Speechmatics' 31 commercially available languages with each language now contain a standard and enhanced model. The standard is the default model with the same or slightly improved accuracy before. The enhanced model is more accurate for all languages, and must be explicitly requested in the configuration. The enhanced model requires more compute resources to run and specific hardware. Please see in the quick start guide our recommendations for running the enhanced model.
It is now necessary to use processors that support Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) when running the container in all scenarios in order to take advantage of latest performance optimisations.
It is also recommended when using the enhanced model to use hardware that supports the AVX512_VNNI flag for optimal processing performance. The enhanced model also has increased compute requirements and will run more slowly than the standard model. For more information please see the quick start guide.
