Isaac,

A possible parallel solution to the problem is software that
indexes and makes searchable audio recordings by word and
phrases. The engine is made by

http://www.nexidia.com/media/

and it's being used in the media industries. I haven't used it
but editor friends of mine swear by its speed and accuracy.

I know no other details about it, unfortunately, as it seems to
be Mac based at the moment.
