Google Launches Election Video Gadget with Transcribed Speech Text

Google has launched a new iGoogle gadget that allows users to search for election videos. The gadget uses speech recognition technology, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

The only speech that is transcribed are fragmented snippets. If you click on little yellow squares along the play bar, you can find out the snippet that occurs at that point and jump to that point in the video.

Of course, what would be most useful is a fully transcribed version of the videos. So much of politics seems to be about statements taken out of context (on both sides of the aisle). At least the full video is there.
