Word Error Rate

What is Word Error Rate?

Although there are other metrics to measure how well an ASR system is performing, WER is a relatively simple but actionable metric that allows us to compare ASR systems to one another, and to evaluate an individual ASR system’s accuracy over time

How is Word Error Rate Calculated?

Word Error Rate (WER) is a commonly used metric to judge the accuracy of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems. It is the ratio of errors in the ASR’s transcription to the total number of words spoken. WER is typically calculated ignoring differences in punctuation, whitespace, and capitalization.
