Greg Nottes (March 2000): »SpeechBot, an experimental audio search engine from Compaq, is available at http://speechbot.research.compaq.com. It indexes popular U.S. radio shows. Instead of using the more labor-intensive approach to first creating transcripts and then indexing those matched to the appropriate spot in an audio file, SpeechBot aims to automate the process by using speech recognition technology to create searchable text words. The automated approach does not match the actual words spoken exactly and is not as reliable as indexed transcripts, but the technology does offer a good starting point for automating the process as well as offering searchable access to radio shows that are not indexed elsewhere.« Source
