Coveo Selects Dragon AudioMining from Nuance to Add Audio and Video Search to Microsoft SharePoint
BURLINGTON, Mass. - Coveo Solutions Inc., a developer of integrated search solutions for the desktop, the intranet and the Web has selected Dragon AudioMining for its Coveo Enterprise Search for Microsoft SharePoint. Nuance's Dragon AudioMining technology makes it possible to search in audio and video files with text keywords and phrases, unlocking the information hidden within rich media files on a corporate server, intranet, Web site, or within private media archives.
The most immediate deployment of the audio and video search-enabled Coveo solution will be to the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy. With the integrated ability to search audio and video content, all Microsoft SharePoint and Coveo Enterprise Search customers will be able to add rich media as a supported content type for search and retrieval.
Dragon AudioMining uses Nuance's speaker-independent recognition engine to create XML word, timestamp and meta-data information for every word spoken within rich media files. XML speech index data makes the speech information within rich media files visible to text-based Web crawlers and search products, unlocking the information hidden within digital audio and video files on the Web and within private media archives. The underlying speech recognition technology that Dragon AudioMining employs is the same that is used in the Dragon NaturallySpeaking® speech recognition solution. AudioMining extends the underlying statistical models that support this recognition engine to a server architecture.
