What is this going to do to video scripts, eh? "Oh, look Bob! Is that a GR5-23475 with a complete overhead install?"

Adobe Flash video will soon contain metadata via automated transcripts, according to this report (link below).

If the Adobe project is widely adopted, it will have a profound impact on how Flash video is searched and discovered. Right now there is very little text data in Flash files. Recently YouTube began including voice-to-text generated metadata into some of the clips in the presidential campaign.
