DeepSpeech for Jetson Nano

Hello Nvidia Devtalk community,

For those who are interested in running DeepSpeech on the Jetson Nano (yes, it does) - i have build Tensorflow 1.13.1 and DeepSpeech 0.5.1 with CUDA support for the Jetson Nano.

Any feedback on this is welcome.

Best regards,
Dominik

Will have to try this out, thanks for sharing!

It would also be great if you could re-post this to the Jetson Projects forum so it’s archived there, in addition to any examples of running it you have.

I have succesfully built DeepSpeech 0.6.0 for Jetson Nano:

Thanks for the sharing!

Does this work on the Jetson Nano? I’m getting Internal: Dst tensor is not initialized which indicates that the GPU runs out of memory.

I have my Nano running in headless mode with approx. 3.5GB free RAM after boot. With that my (few) tests on Nano worked without the error you are seeing.

I only got that error the first time I tried to transcribe an audio file. When I ran DeepSpeech again, it worked. When attempting to transcribe an audio file that was not from the demo audio files, I found I needed to have Sound eXchange (SoX) installed which can be done by running the command:

sudo apt-get install sox

deepspeech --version is showing blanks for the TensorFlow and DeepSpeech versions.
