Johns Hopkins University engineers are developing a speech recognition system that will help historians sift through thousands of hours of interviews collected from Holocaust survivors and witnesses in languages other than English. The system is intended to be a key component of an innovative "audio search engine" that would allow historians and educators to easily comb through a vast collection of videotaped interviews to find personal accounts of specific Holocaust experiences.
The above story is based on materials provided by Johns Hopkins University. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
