45. SOUNDTRACK SEARCHING

A SPOKEN WORD FINDER IS IDENTIFICATION TECHNOLOGY NOT YET AVAILABLE.

IN OTHER WORDS, A MEANS TO FIND A SPECIFIC TEXT PORTION WITHIN NON-FICTION AUDIO RECORDINGS WOULD BE AN INVALUABLE RESEARCH TOOL.

FOR EXAMPLE, BEING ABLE TO JUMP DIRECTLY TO A FACT LIKE A QUOTATION OR JUMP TO ANY HEADING LIKE CHAPTERS. HOWEVER, THE LATTER IS CURRENTLY PROVIDED BY SOME PRODUCERS BUT THESE MARKERS ARE NOT UNIVERSAL.
CLEARLY, AN AUDIO-BOOK CONTENTS POSITION LOCATOR WOULD BE THE INTERSECTION OF TIME AND TEMPO, THE ULTIMATE IN SPEECH RECOGNITION.

FOR NOW, ONE WORK AROUND IS TO USE CLOSED CAPTIONING SOFTWARE TO CONVERT AUDIO TO TEXT WHICH THEN CAN BE EASILY SEARCHED.
