What tools would you recommend to index the audio track for video editing? I'd like to be able to do a text search for words in the dialog to more easily locate video snippets. I'm using FC and/or Premiere.

Premiere CS4+ has a feature called Speech Search. I haven't used it personally, however, so I'm not sure of the quality. However, this site has a sample of video, and also a PDF of the transcription Speech Search provided (they describe it as "eh").

+1. I've used this feature and I must say it's very hit-or-miss. It can only handle specific accents, and identification takes a long time. –  Ankur Banerjee Jul 6 '11 at 3:26
