Searching For Sounds and Syllables, not text
New technology sounds very promising

I was just reading about a new technology that allows direct search for sounds in sounds files [infoworld.com].

Seems mighty promising. Imagine searching a recorded files of a seminar, or the taped record of customer service reps. It currently works only in .wav files, but that's just a matter of time. And the price tag is rather hearty (5 figures) but that's also a matter of time.

tedster, I think you've given Google Labs their next project! They did a good job with OCR in their Catalog Beta [catalog.google.com].

Why not sound? I can see myself purchasing a "secure" telephone in the near future. :)

Google Labs - my goodness, that is an idea. Especially if this software can extract syllables that are SUNG rather than spoken.

Imagine being able to search for specific Mick Jagger lyrics! On second thought, that might be a bit beyond what any software can decipher.

Finally, I can understand what Ozzy says on the Osbournes!
