From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

 

GOP presidential nominee John McCain visited a small town outside Milwaukee today and promised to take his White House campaign to small towns throughout America. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.

 

John McCain's first campaign stop after the GOP convention was a red, white and blue slice of Americana, as a picturesque street in Cedarburg, Wisconsin was transformed into McCain Street, USA. While there McCain acknowledged a disappointing new jobs report which showed unemployment climbing to a nearly five-year high, McCain's prescription is to extend the Bush tax cuts while lowering taxes on corporate income. "All you ever asked of government is to stand on your side, not in your way. And that's what I intend to do: stand on your side and fight for your future." McCain also wants to negotiate new trade agreements, saying freer trade would promote new jobs. Scott Horsley, NPR News, with the McCain campaign in Wisconsin.

 

McCain's Democratic rival Barack Obama was also talking jobs and the economy today during a campaign stopover in Pennsylvania. The Democratic presidential nominee said the news that the nation's unemployment rate rose four tenths of a percent last month to 6.1% shows an economy that's in bad shape. "We just got a jobs report today that showed we had lost another 80,000 jobs. 80,000 jobs lost, we've now lost 605,000 jobs since the beginning of this year." Speaking at a glass factory in Duryea, Pennsylvania, Obama accused the Republicans of ignoring the middle class.

 

Talks with a federal mediator and union negotiators at Boeing have failed to reach a deal on a contract with the International Association of Machinists, now saying a strike will commence at one minute after midnight. Union officials said despite meetings late into the night and through today, continued talks failed to address issues. Rank and file members have already authorized the strike after rejecting a contract offer from the company that would have called for an 11% pay raise over three year. The union represents around 27,000 Boeing employees.

 

Tropical storm Hanna appears to be picking up steam as it moves toward the Carolinians, where already rained from the storm's outer bands is being felt. Right now, the storm remains just below hurricane strength and is centered about 160 miles southeast of Charleston with top winds of 70 miles an hour. However forecasters think it will intensify. North Carolina Governor Mike Easley said residents should not go out into the storm and should heed warnings from local authorities. "It is not fun to hear those winds for 6 to 7 hours and just sweat that out. It's, it's always good to heed the evacuation warnings if you get ... " Forecasters still aren't sure exactly where Hanna will come ashore, however they expect the storm will arrive near the North Carolina-South Carolina border bringing heavy rain to the coastal Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic.

 

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 33 points to end the week at 11,220. For the week, the Dow was down 2.8%. The NASDAQ lost 3 points today.

 

This is NPR.

 

A top US general in Afghanistan says attacks by the Taliban and other fighters have increased as much as 30% over the same time last year. He admits more needs to be done with more troops and development money. NPR's Tom Bowman has that story.

 

Major General Jeffrey Schloesser commands troops in the eastern part of Afghanistan, part of against the border with Pakistan. He's planning a winter offensive against Taliban fighters and he expects attacks against US and coalition forces to be harder than at any time since 2002. Schloesser is pressing for more US troops. And some are expected to be announced next week - another 4,000 army troops, but they're not expected to arrive until February. The general says we're not losing in Afghanistan. "The Afghan army and police forces continue to get stronger," he says. Pressed by reporters on whether coalition forces are winning, Schloesser says he's overseeing a slow win. It'll take longer, he adds, to turn that into a solid strong win. Tom Bowman, NPR news, the Pentagon.

 

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the US Treasury Department is close to finalizing a plan to help shore up mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In a story posted on its website, the journal says an announcement could come as early as this weekend. Treasury spokesperson told NPR "we are making progress." The journal report says the plan includes changes in senior management at the beleaguered companies and involves "creative use" of the Treasury's new authority to inject capital into Fannie and Freddie.

据我所知,Boston和Everyzing里的NPR Hourly等transcript是智能语音识别软件PodZinger识别的。这个软件的识别率很高(80%以上),但还是犯很多低级错误。千万不要被它误导了。

 

请见以下资料:

 

其实早在一年前,波士顿初创公司EveryZing便推出了一款与前者设计原理异曲同工的视频和音频搜索引擎——PodZinger,这是一款播客搜索引擎,它采用了BBN技术公司开发的一种语言系统,可将音频内容转换成文本,而且准确率在80%以上,足以体现音频的主要内容,能指导用户迅速在文件中找到某个搜索目标词出现的地方,并总结出音频内容的核心意思。

 

之前《互联网视频革命的第一枪》这篇文章曾对PodZinger的强大功能作过阐述,Podzinger可以在网络上抓取视频、音频文件,利用语音识别技术深入分析其文件内容,根据用户搜索需求提交相应结果。它有一种软件能够“听”视频文件中的语音,并转换成可供搜索引擎使用的文本。搜索结果中的每个词语都可以点开并载入音频剪辑,在指定的词汇点上开始播放。这无疑是一种革命性的突破。Podzinger的文本记录对于搜索者而言远比传统搜索引擎根据“元数据(Metadata)”搜索结果所显示的音频和视频剪辑更具有相关性。

 

EveryZing公司首席执行官Tom Wilde当年也曾如此骄傲地介绍这款产品:这么高的准确度可以带来许多新搜索功能,比如提供视频和音频的完整文本,以及直接跳到话语中某个词或者词组被说出的位置。这项技术还可以让公司提供与特定内容有关的有针对性广告,就好像Google推出的基于网页中文本的广告一样。

语音识别的难题

 

语音识别这个概念,我们并不陌生,从孤立词到大词汇量连续语音的识别(LVCSR),再到语音库检索,语音识别技术一直在向前发展,只是语音识别似乎离我们还有些遥远。“今后5年内,互联网搜索将更多地通过语音来完成。”今年的2月23日,比尔·盖茨在美国卡内基·梅隆大学发表演讲说道,这已数不清是他第几次在公开场合提及语音识别了。

 

对于中文而言,语音识别技术的实现较之英语面临着更多的困难。当南方人把“牛奶”念成“留来”的时候,究竟是机器识别错了,还是人错了? 微软中国研发集团下属微软亚洲研究院语音识别组组长宋言哥平提出过这样一个问题。而不仅仅是南北口音的偏差,每个人都有独有的发音习惯。这就造成了语音输入很难规范的问题。其次,噪声也是一种不可抗的难题。“这很好理解,机器无法像人那样分辨出人声和噪声。”宋言哥平解释道,“同时,不同场景有不同噪声,训练的情况也不能匹配真实环境,这使语音识别在噪声中比在安静的环境下难得多。”

 

克服这些难题尚需时日,这也是为何中文音频搜索进展缓慢的一个关键原因。如今日本的音频搜索网站已经上线,中国的用户也期待着可以更快享受到这种先进搜索技术带来的更多便捷。

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

 

GOP presidential nominee John McCain visited a small town outside Milwaukee today and promised to take his White House campaign to small towns throughout America. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.

John McCain's first campaign stop after the GOP convention was a red, white and blue slice of Americana, as a picturesque street in Cedarburg, Wisconsin was transformed into McCain Street, USA. While \ there McCain acknowledged a disappointing new jobs report which showed unemployment climbing to a nearly five-year high. McCain's prescription is to extend the Bush tax cuts while lowering taxes on corporate income. "All you ever asked of government is to stand on your side, not in your way. And that's what I intend to do: stand on your side and fight for your future." McCain also wants to negotiate new trade agreements, saying freer trade would promote new jobs. Scott Horsley, NPR News, with the McCain campaign in Wisconsin.

 

McCain's Democratic rival Barack Obama was also talking jobs and the economy today during a campaign stopover in Pennsylvania. The Democratic presidential nominee said the news that the nation's unemployment rate rose four tenths of a percent last month to 6.1% shows an economy that's in bad shape. "We just got a jobs report today that showed we had lost another 80,000 jobs. 80,000 jobs lost, we've now lost 605,000 jobs since the beginning of this year." Speaking at a glass factory in Duryea, Pennsylvania, Obama accused the Republicans of ignoring the middle class.

 

Talks with a federal mediator and union negotiators at Boeing have failed to reach a deal on a contract with the International Association of Machinists now saying a strike will commence at one minute after midnight. Union officials said despite meetings late into the night and through today, continued talks failed to address issues. Rank and file members have already authorized the strike after rejecting a contract offer from the company that would have called for an 11% pay raise over three year. The union represents around 27,000 Boeing employees.

 

Tropical storm Hanna appears to be picking up steam as it moves toward the Carolinians, where already rain from the storm's outer bands is being felt. Right now, the storm remains just below hurricane strength and is centered about 160 miles southeast of Charleston with top winds of 70 miles an hour. However forecasters think it will intensify. North Carolina Governor Mike Easley said residents should not go out into the storm and should heed warnings from local authorities. "It is not fun to hear those winds for 6, 7 hours and sweat that out. It's, it's always good to heed the evacuation warnings if you get them. " Forecasters still aren't sure exactly where Hanna will come ashore, however they expect the storm will arrive near the North Carolina-South Carolina border bringing heavy rain to the coastal Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic.

 

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 33 points to end the week at 11,220. For the week, the Dow was down 2.8%. The NASDAQ lost three points today.

A top US general in Afghanistan says attacks by the Taliban and other fighters have increased as much as 30% over the same time last year. He admits more needs to be done with more troops and development money. NPR's Tom Bowman has that story.

 

Major General Jeffrey Schloesser commands troops in the eastern part of Afghanistan, part against the border with Pakistan. He's planning a winter offensive against Taliban fighters and he expects attacks against US and coalition forces to be harder than at any time since 2002. Schloesser is pressing for more US troops. And some more is expected to be announced next week--another 4,000 army troops, but they're not expected to arrive until February. The general says we're not losing in Afghanistan. The Afghan army and police forces continue to get stronger, he says. Pressed by reporters on whether coalition forces are winning, Schloesser says he's overseeing a slow win. It'll take longer, he adds, to turn that into a solid strong win. Tom Bowman, NPR news, the Pentagon.

 

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the US Treasury Department is close to finalizing a plan to help shore up mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In a story posted on its website, the journal says an announcement could come as early as this weekend. Treasury spokesperson told NPR "we are making progress." The journal report says the plan includes changes in senior management at the beleaguered companies and involves "creative use" of Treasury's new authority to inject capital into Fannie and Freddie.

 

Crude oil prices continued their downward slide today with near month contract for benchmark grade crude falling $1.66 a barrel to end the session at $106.23 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
