This paper describes ongoing work on selective dissemination of broadcast news. Our pipeline system includes several modules: audio preprocessing, speech recognition, and topic segmentation and indexation. The main goal of this work is to study the impact of earlier errors in the last modules. The impact of audio preprocessing errors is quite small on the speech recognition module, but quite significant in terms of topic segmentation. On the other hand, the impact of speech recognition errors
