Google’s labs have created a new audio search function, which allows the user to search the audio of video clips on YouTube by keyword, an announcement on the Official Google Blog has said.
GAudi, as the service has been dubbed, will produce a list of search results for a term and the times at which they occurred.
The most useful function: you can skip forward to the point in the clip at which your keyword crops up.
The audio indexing tool builds on Google’s launch of video-to-text transcription for political videos in YouTube’s politicians channel, as part of its US presidential election services.
