Maurice -

Adobe Premiere (their high-end video editing package) has audio search built in. I've never used it, though.

OK. I've always been one to think beyond my brain. My latest boundary is to find a way to search an audio file (MP3, WAV,
AIFF...whatever). You know...finding that point in your song or MP3 audiobook without FFD or
RWD over and over again...I know you know what I mean. In my opinion, digital
audio today is still the old vintage cassettes, only more portable and
accessible. I am familiar with 'Metadata' from working with a software company that
creates broadcast software for TV stations across the globe.

I came across a site about 2years ago that was doing some study in this area,
more focused on video, but similar.

Any other posibilities? I have had this one on my mind for about 4years. It got more justified when I
dove into 4-6hrs audiobooks. Yes. I do have an Audible account, but even then..."...what point/chapter did
I hear the word "bizwiz."?

Looking for an idea? Here is one. I would be more than happy to contribute to such revolutionary thinking. Imagine searching your songs/videos as you would a Word or PDF document?

Thanks in advanced, Maurice

Some enterprise search vendors appear to take an approach of generating a text document using text to speach conversion, then setting the match very fuzzy to allow for mistakes in the text to speach conversion - think "road - rode". I've seen a *demo* where the entire process was done in real time.

Is this the sort of thing you are thinking of?

The idea of using text to speech conversion is a very interesting one. Another idea I've had is to use the closed captioning in video for search.
