Elections Video Search by Google

Filed under: election,Google,search engine,video — Lynne @ 4:05 pm

The Elections Video Search Google Gadget uses speech recognition software to transcribe and index political speeches. Using the gadget you can search spoken content in transcribed videos from YouTube’s Politicians Channel. Not only are you able to search on the text used in speeches, but once the words are found you then can quickly jump to the portion of the video you are most interested in.

This new search tool was just launched this week so expect some glitches.
