Chooch’s Experiment with Google Voice

If you listened to the Technology: Podasting’s Rocket Fuel panel audio from Balticon 43, you’ll have heard Chooch and I discussing an experiment in automatic transcription using Google Voice. Wouldn’t you know that Chooch actually tried it out and documented his results. It doesn’t look like he was entirely successful but he is open to suggestion for alternatives that may work better. I still would like to see Google open up their transcription capabilities further so that we could see a more capable audio search engine as well as other novel applications for audio and video podcasters.

    1. It was attempted without success. I think the problem was getting a high enough quality to the audio played into the voice mail system as well as a time limit on messages.
