27.3 openai identify


The whisper package provides the functionality for the identify command. We expose the command through the MLHub package.

The identify command will report on the language that the model identifies in the language of the media provided.

We try this out with Indonesia’s President Jokowi’s speech. Download a sample from Togaware:

wget https://access.togaware.com/jokowi.wav

We can ask to identify the language:

ml identify openai jokowi.wav

The result is in csv (comma separated values) format for further processing if required on the command line.


Other languages can be identified.

ml identify openai other.wav
ml identify openai orig.wav
