LTG Research projects



SPINDLE will bring together the Open Spires media team at OUCS with experts in linguistics and speech technology from the Phonetics Laboratory and the Faculty of Linguistics, Phonetics and Phonology to work on the University's growing collection of video and audio podcasts of lectures. The project will experiment with speech-to-text technologies to automatically create transcripts of lectures, and develop new tools to generate better keywords to help with the indexing and description of the lectures, as well as other innovative techniques to exploit and deliver audio, video and text.

  • Duration: March 2012 to September 2012
  • Supported by the JISC Rapid Innovation in Open Educational Resources Programme.
