PODZINGER.COM is a new website that supposedly uses voice recognition technology to transcribe podcasts so the full text can be indexed. I did a search for Indiana Wesleyan and got 20 hits – a search for “Indiana Wesleyan” retrieved only 4, but they were relevant. There were no hits for either EBSCO or Infotrac – though since these are not “dictionary” words, podcasts on these databases may exist and just not be retrievable.
