This paper reports on the results of a quantitative analysis of user requirements for audiovisual search that allow the categorisation of requirements and to compare requirements across user groups. The categorisation provides clear directions with respect to the prioritisation of system features from the perspective of the development of systems for specific, single user groups and systems that have a more general target user group.
