GAudi is short for Google Audio Indexing, and itï¿½??s the latest experiment to be added to the Google Labs. This service lets you do a text search for spoken words in videos of YouTubeï¿½??s US politicians channels. The functionality was previously already available as part of an iGoogle gadget.
Will Google ever manage to apply this technology to all YouTube videos ï¿½?? and perhaps even videos not contained on YouTube, but available from other video upload platforms? Google in their FAQ write that the aim of GAudi ï¿½??on Google Labs is broader and the US election is just a first step. We see it as an experiment platform where we can learn what features make the best user experience for people looking for spoken content on the Web.ï¿½??
