Setting local path for Dataset: Fine-tuning Whisper model

Hello all,

I hope whoever reads this is doing well!!

Apologies if this is a silly question. I’m working on my first real attempt at fine-tuning a whisper model & first time using Hugging Face as a resource. I worked off of this as a test run for training and it went surprisingly well.
My big question is, how would I set the dataset path, to a local path? At least my current plan was to concatenate my custom data with the Mozilla dataset used in this hugging face blog post, I have it downloaded locally.

Thanks for every ones time, and any help at all!!!

Hi! This section in the datasets docs explains how to load a local audio dataset.
