I just posted this over on my blog, but I thought it was cool enough to put directly on the Speech team blog as well.
It’s official. Microsoft’s audio indexing solution (born out of Microsoft Research) is now online as a part of a Washington State pilot program aimed at making audio recordings from 1973 to present available to the public, with an easy to use search interface.
I just tried it out, and it worked great!
I love seeing the technology transfer from research to product groups, and research using existing technology off the shelf from the product groups.
Nice job Microsoft Research. Nice job Speech team.
