The Cambridge University Multimedia Document Retrieval Demo System is a web based application that allows the user to query a database of automatically generated transcripts of radio broadcasts that are available on-line. The paper describes how speech recognition and information retrieval techniques are combined in this system and shows how the user can interact with it.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
