Audio search?

Does anybody know if there's a way to do a Search in an audio file? Say a long interview, and you want to find the place the speaker mentioned, uh, Betty Boob's affair with Donald Duck, without having to re-listen to the whole thing?

I don't know of any way to actually search an audio file, but if you open it with Quicktime Player, you can play it back at high speed. It's often possible to understand the content at double speed, and if you're familiar with the content, it might be possible to sense the approximate location of specific content even listening at higher speeds.
