    Hey all
    Is there some type of program or widget which can get the lyrics from the song that is currently palying in itunes, but not from the web, but that can get the lyrics just by the sound(dunno how to explain it lol). I want some lyrics of some underground groups but they arent online so I was wondering if there was a program that was capable of getting them jsut by the song.

    i highly doubt it. But maybe the built in song info can help with an application that reads that. apple-i the song, click lyrics, listen to the song and type them in. hard, i know, but that combined with an app i know must be out there, you might be able to get it.

    Mmmm... the short answer is no.

    Voice recognition works, and I guess you could put the song through Dragon Naturally Speaking or something like that, but it's going to have a hard time dealing with the speed at which hip-hop artists rap, the slang, and most importantly, the presence of background music.

    And it's certainly not going to be anywhere near free. :(
