Analysis and Visualization of Index Words from Audio Transcripts of Instructional Videos
We introduce new techniques for extracting, analyzing, and visualizing textual contents from instructional videos of low production quality. Using Automatic Speech Recognition, approximate transcripts (75% Word Error Rate) are obtained from the originally highly compressed videos of university courses, each comprising between 10 to 30 lectures. Text material in the form of books or papers that accompany the course are then used to filter meaningful phrases from the seemingly incoherent transcripts. The resulting index into the transcripts is tied together and visualized in 3 experimental graphs that help in understanding the overall course structure and provide a tool for localizing certain topics for indexing. We specifically discuss a Transcript Index Map, which graphically lays out key phrases for a course, a Textbook Chapter to Transcript Match, and finally a Lecture Transcript Similarity graph, which clusters semantically similar lectures. We test our methods and tools on 7 full ...
