The field of Text Mining has evolved over the past years to analyze textual resources. However, it can be used in several other applications. In this research, we are particularly interested in performing text mining techniques on audio materials after translating them into texts in order to detect the speakers' emotions. We describe our overall methodology and present our experimental results. In particular, we focus on the different features selection and classification methods used. Our results show interesting conclusions opening up new horizons in the field, and suggest an emergence of promising future work yet to be discovered. © 2010 IEEE.
