Poetry, stories, and speeches aren’t just what we read or what we hear - they're how we make meaning and celebrate history. Hundreds of thousands of spoken text audio files - including poetry readings, American Indian stories, and presidential speeches - remain untapped in archives throughout the world. These digital artifacts hold our oral traditions, and projects like High Performance Sound Technologies for Analysis and Scholarship (HiPSTAS) out of the University of Texas’s School of Information feature original high performance data mining tools that help us visualize sound culture in ways we never imagined. How will these new audio technologies reshape the way we understand our words and ourselves?
