SpeakerText is an interesting new start-up that allows users to find, read, and share specific parts of a web-based video by clicking on the transcription of the corresponding text. When a snippet of the transcript is placed in an email or blog post, it becomes a clickable link which takes the viewer to the exact point in the video.

SpeakerText was created by two Berkeley graduates with a budget of $4000 and an engineering team that was compensated in iPhones.  Although the service is still in its infancy, it has the potential to make web video as easy to reference as text- something that could be extremely useful for publishers, writers and researchers of any kind.

Several demonstrations of SpeakerText in action can be found here.
