digip Posted May 11, 2007 Share Posted May 11, 2007 Ok. I was thinking about a program that could take a video or song and then make the audio into a text file. I then thought, Voice recognition software already kinda does this to begin with. Vista (and other os's) can do voice recognition and it's well known the exploits people have already tried, sending various commands through mp3's, etc to people, but what I was thinking is, Vista is understanding these commands, which means it must be able to convert it to text, us tlike as if a hadicapped person was giving an oral dictation in word, etc. So, my question is, how hard is it to get it to so they work for you, in creating a subtitle to a film, or dump the lyrics from a song to a text file? The should be a way to have Vista (or any other OS) create Speech to Text files on the fly for you. If someone can find a way to make a modded vb app to take advantage of this in vista, then theoretically you could have it dump the audio from an episode of Hak5 to a text file. And with a little counter system, time stamp each peice so it works like an .srt file to be merged with the video. It could then be translated into other languages so people from around the world could add subtitles to the episodes of Hak5. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
