SpeechBot Provides Free Online Audio Archives Search Using Speech Recognition
HP’s SpeechBot web site uses speech recognition technology to search the archives of a large slice of audio and video programs broadcast over the internet. This includes Fresh Air and PBS Online NewsHour and Car Talk, among other sources. Rough transcripts show the content found based on your search terms, and then if you are interested in hearing more, it takes you to the exact spot in the broadcast where the item was found. If you heard something on the radio, this provides a way to retrieve it later. Amazing!
