Photo captions.

HP researchers are working on a clever technology which can automatically add captions to your digital photos by listening as you chat about them. Sounds useful – anything that makes finding archived photos easier gets a tick in my book.

‘Fleck has developed software that records these conversations to hard disc, converts the speech to text using a speech-recognition program, and then extracts keywords with which the photos are captioned and indexed…Her current prototype runs on a PC equipped with a microphone, and automatically starts recording when you open a digital photo album and begin a commentary on the pictures. It stops after 30 seconds if you are not talking.’
