Recently scientists have been focusing on a new class of application that promises on-demand access to multimedia information such as radio and broadcast news. This chapter describes how the synergy of speech, language and image processing has enabled a new class of information on demand news systems.

We describe several systems and identify some remaining challenging research areas.
