Persons who speak professionally to audiences, e.g., teachers, typically spend substantial time and effort to prepare presentation or lecture materials. Answers to follow-up questions from the audience can become more meaningful if the speaker has access to relevant backup material, which, however, may not always be on hand. This disclosure describes techniques to assist speakers in a dynamic, real-time, and automatic manner. Speaker presentation materials and spoken statements are obtained with permission and are used to formulate contextual queries. Results of the queries that include contextually relevant content are grouped by topic and are displayed in a user interface, e.g., as a sidebar that is viewable by the speaker. The results can be displayed in a tabbed user interface that separates content based on content type.
