Dialogue/audio edit detection
I wish that Premiere could detect when audio (particularly speech) drops in and out, and automatically remove silent gaps. Much like Scene Edit Detection, but focusing on capturing useful footage in the rushes of an interview, or presenting to camera.
This would save so much time in editing through raw footage that focuses on when the subject is speaking.
Additionally, it would be good for it to ignore coughs and other short bursts of audio, that clearly aren't useful dialogue.

Removing silent parts from interviews or other talking videos is very tedious and time consuming in Adobe Premier Pro. This would be a very welcome update. I was bummed to see this wasn't added in Premeir 2022, hopefully soon
I know other editing software has this capability, it's about time it's added to Adobe Premiere.

This is a great idea. And I've found videos showing how this exact capability is available in Adobe Audition, but obviously that doesn't edit video, where in my opinion, it's going to be far more utilised as an editing tool.
It's a round about way but it uses Audition's "Diagnostics" tool to mark the speech based on parameters that detect "speech" and "silence" by decibels and minimum length in ms.
Then use the markers to create subclips, exporting the WAV file with that metadata, using media encoder to render into a blank MOV file with only the audio and metadata, then importing into Premiere and replacing the blank video with the original video, creating subclips dedicated to the "Speech" portions.

Also with the update to Premiere's function of "Text to Speech" coming up very soon, already in the current Beta. the technology to recognise "Speech" is clearly there.
