The Institute of Cybernetics at the Tallinn University of Technology is developing a voice-sensing internet browser and search engine with an audio-to-text function. The first versions are already open for testing.

The technology helps overcome the pesky and time-consuming task of locating a specific word within an audio file several hours long, reported ETV. Once the desired conversation has been located, it can be generated into text format. The audio-to-text function makes writing a book easy for someone who types very slowly or has a disability.

Voice technology researcher Tanel Alumäe said the target consumers of the product could be those working in radio and television, but also university students, who no longer would have to transcribe long lectures.

Both applications, currently available only for the Estonian language, are free for testing at the Institute of Cybernetics homepage.
