Search TED Talks with PodZinger
March 2, 2007
PodZinger (see also here for a past link to it) has a section dedicated to TED Talks. There’s no real landing page, and it looks like a specialized search. With no keyword there are 56 search results, apparently covering up to last year’s edition, TED2006, though the collection doesn’t quite cover the full list you can find at the TEDTalks page.
With TEDTALKSSEARCH is possible to search the Talks by keywords and jump to the parts of the talk where the keywords are used (spoken). Read here for more information about how PodZinger makes it possible (speech recognition).
Most of the Talks I’ve watched so far are definitely interesting, and what is expressed is something you may want to listen to more than once. Being able to directly search by text instead of fastforwarding and rewinding the audio/video in search of the spot of interest is of great help (and saves battery on the iPod) to access the data I am interested in.
An innovative technology put to good use.
