SpeechBot is a is a search engine for audio & video content that is hosted and played from other websites. Recordings are indexed via speech recognition on the audio. A very interesting experiment which seems to work for some queries; the transcripts are obviously noisy but it’s obvious that if a particular term is repeated often in a piece then it will get indexed well. My search for ancient history troy returned a few relevant results but many false hits due to troy being an easily inserted token.
