View Full Version : [all variants] Convert Internet Radio to Text

June 23rd, 2012, 06:45 AM
Hey guys.

I've been using Ubuntu for the past few years and I decided that a cool project would be to use open-source tools to convert an audio stream to text.

In particular, I am interested in converting police communications using the live scanners on a website like this one (http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/) into a continuous text file that I can periodically update on a webserver.

I have looked at Julius and CMU Sphinx but both of them look like complicated solutions for a simple problem. I just need to convert the audio to text and spit it to a file or standard stream.

What would you recommend Ubuntu Community?
