I have about 20000 small audio files (.wav) on a folder on my computer. The filenames are random, and each file is a short line (5 to 30 seconds) said by one of five or six different voice actors.

I was wondering if there's some software or something that will help me detect all the files for each voice, and automatically organize them on different folders, so each folder would contain the lines that each voice actor said.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

I unfortunately don't have an answer for you, but my initial guess is that this would be very hard to do reliably and sounds very specialized, so I doubt there is any software to do it automatically. In most professional work flows, they would have cataloged them on intake. –  AJ Henderson Nov 25 '13 at 14:27
