We recently benchmarked whisper-large-v2 against the substantial [**English CommonVoice dataset**]( on a distributed cloud (SaladCloud) with consumer GPUs.

**The Result: Transcribed 137 days of audio in 15 hrs for just $117.**

Traditionally, utilizing a managed service like AWS Transcribe would set you back about **$10,500** for transcribing the entirety of the English CommonVoice dataset.

Using a custom model? That’s an even steeper **$13,134**.

In contrast, our approach using Whisper on a distributed cloud cost just **$117**, achieving the same result. …
