Speech recognition tool to convert audio to text transcripts

From GitHub:

Speech recognition tool to convert audio to text transcripts for GNU/Linux.

spchcat is a command-line tool that reads in audio from .WAV files, a microphone, or system audio inputs and converts any speech found into text. It runs locally on your machine, with no web API calls or network activity. It is built on top of Coqui's speech to text library, TensorFlow, KenLM, and data from Mozilla's Common Voice project.
