The Idiap Research Institute (acknowledgement to Alexandre Nanchen) has recently developed a technology to localize, detect and recognize text in videos based on Optical Character Recognition. A project has been conducted on Canal9 local Swiss video channel. An application helps to make a search online based on the discussed topic or speaker name. Klewel provides the associated service.
Une société suisse développe un moteur de recherche audiovisuel

Search feature extended to what was said by the speaker!
Klewel in partnership with the Idiap Research Institute has conducted an AMIDA mini-project on automatic captioning of video lectures.
The goal of the AMIDA mini-project was to transfer some of the technologies developed
within the AMIDA project to be used by a Klewel retrieval system. More specifically, the
main focus was to develop a speech-to-text application based on the AMIDA Automatic
Speech Recognition (ASR) system.
