From Jim at Digital Anarchy -

(who you’ll find in Suite#439 at the Renaissance near the South Hall at NAB)
are giving away two bundles of PowerSearch & Transcriptive;

PowerSearch allows the editor to search the entire Premiere project. This is particularly powerful when used with Transcriptive or other tool that turns all the dialog in your video footage to text.  It becomes like Google for your Premiere project, searching through the text and displaying any clips or sequences where your search term is spoken. You can then click on the results and it’ll open the clip/sequence and jump to where it’s spoken.

Transcriptive and Transcriptive.com
Transcriptive is a new way of transcribing video and turning speech into metadata. It’s a word processor for transcripts making it easy to edit and make changes. It leverages the power of machine learning and A.I. to transcribe with up to 95% accuracy.  
The total integration with Premiere Pro means as you click on words or phrases, the time marker jumps to the point in the clip or sequence where it’s said. You can search everything. It opens up a whole new way of working with metadata as everything that’s spoken is turned into text with timecode attached to it.
