Speech Retrieval is the process of retrieving spoken audio material (documents)in response to a search query. Search queries can be spoken or textual. Speech retrieval makes use of techniques from speech recognition, natural language understanding and information retrieval. Possible applications are the indexing of archives of broadcast material, and monitoring of telephone conversations.
