German language model looking for helping hands (contributors)

Hey community,

@synesthesiam started to create a Google Doc Spreadsheet with about 2000 german sentences. By now I’ve started to check the sentences for three criterias:

  1. vulgar or offensive
  2. don’t make sense / make sense
  3. are something no one would actually say

I"m looking for some helping hands.

In case you would like to help out just leave a post underneath or write me a PN so I can get in touch with you.

The quicker we can verify the sentences, the sooner @synesthesiam can make a Google voice to evaluate the approach. So let’s work together and push this thing forward :slight_smile:


I can verify sentences, jut not good at reading out aloud, so I will be no help in actually reading stuff for training data (unless you want way to fast speech with misread words because my mouth is slower than my brain).

Hi all!
Small update:

Currently there are three people working on this, all ~2500 sentences are checked, sorted, cleaned up and waiting for a second recheck.

After that we commit them to the Git.

We keep you updated :slight_smile:


Count me in if there’s anything to do

Hey @schnopsi,
thank you very much for wanting to contribute. @synesthesiam already used the team’s results to train the Larynx model de_thorsten which should already be available in Rhasspy’s TTS settings.
