We present a prototype that enables the generation of hyperlinks between audio and the corresponding transcript. The main issue in generating such hyperlinks is determining common time points in the transcript and the audio (this is also called aligning). The system is speaker independent and can deal with inexact transcripts. It combines inaccurate modules in such a way that the fmal results are extremely satisfactory.
