| ||Ask HN: Why don't we use subtitled films/tv to train speech recognition?|

|There are thousands of films and tv episodes that have subtitles throughout their duration. Millions of music that are sung that we can find lyrics for. Would it not be possible to use this material to train speech recognition. This would then make it possible to train in the multiple different dialects and accents of a particular language.|
Speech recognition as a technology, has always appeared to move slowly although with the advent of mobile popularity, the technology is becoming increasingly popular.
Is anyone doing anything like this?
