Title: CONTROLLING PLAYBACK OF SPEECH-CONTAINING AUDIO DATA
Abstract:
A control method improves a user's ability to navigate in speech-containing audio data during playback of the audio data on a computing device. The control method is executed by a processor in the computing device and comprises operating (51) a media player on the computing device to play the audio data, detecting (52) a user-initiated time-shift command to step forward or backward in the audio data, and, after detecting the time-shift command at a current time in the audio data, identifying (55) a starting point of a sentence in the audio data and operating (56) the media player to play the audio data from the starting point.
