Would a JavaScript module that reads a srt transcript and returns timecodes based on text searches be something that is useful?

I'm just listening to Ep 14 of Podcasting 2.0 and it piqued my interest as something that might be worthwhile?

Thanks @adam and @dave for another great episode.


After poking around, I have something of a PoC coming together for the Podcast Transcript Search.

Please have a look:


There is more work to be done, but it will search SubRip files for matches.

Works via node/cli or browser. CORS limits browser to SRTs on the same domain, needs a service to fix that.

Next steps:

- Search across entries.
- Play audio at the timecode.

Please comment / criticise.

If it seems valuable, I will keep working on it.

@bergoz This looks great. I could put this into the Freedom Controller too. Would be nice to have as part of its native search.

@bergoz @dave Lobe this!! Of course it would be phenomenal t on be able to take action on the results, like a player at that time code.

@adam @dave


I will see if I can improve the search and add a player.
