LibriSpeech is developed by OpenSLR with all data collected by his research student. Danial Povey is an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University in the Center for Language and Speech Processing as a speech recognition researcher. LibriSpeech is a collection of more than 1000 hours of speech data which is collected by Vassil Panayotov with the assistance of Daniel Povey. It is used in many applications such as speaker recognition and automatic speaker verification.

OpenSLR(Open speech and language resources) has 93 SLRs in the domain of software, audio, music, speech, and text dataset open for download. The Librispeech dataset is SLR12 which is the audio recording of reading English speech. The file format of data is in the form of FLAC(Free Lossless Audio Codec) without any loss in quality or loss of any original audio data.

1. Kaldi Speech Recognition toolkit:
LibriSpeech Dataset is used in the Kaldi Speech recognition to extract text from speech. It is useful in a speech to text generation. There are many software developed using the Kaldi toolkit for speech recognition.
2.Sentiment classification of spoken speech:
The sentiment of the speech using LibreSpeech dataset to train the model to automatically detect their emotion in speech.
To verify the gender and emotion of the speaker, their accent to catch their range of age.
4. Automatic speech recognition:
Automatic speech recognition is used in the process of speech to text and text to speech recognition. Model is trained using a natural language processing toolkit.
We have learned about the LibriSpeech dataset, how we can download it from the source. Librispeech dataset creator and their researcher. Implementation of model in PyTorch data loader for Kaldi speech recognition toolkit. Using Tensorflow for the end-to-end speech recognition and some of the application is used in daily life using Librispeech Datasets.
