Audio content indexing

By creating an index from the spoken content of very large audio databases, we make the content accessible through search engines similar to Google.

In order to accomplish that, we must combine speech recognition with another expertise in indexing and searching, which allows to find the searched terms in spite of recognition errors, pronunciation or spelling variants, and the limited vocabulary of the recognition system.

This expertise has been applied to some projects relating to the cinematographic archives of the National Film Board (NFB) or the collected testimonies of the Bastarache investigative commission.

Related technologies: recognition engine, finite-state transducers.
