Tools for multimodal annotation

Steve Cassidy, Thomas Schmidt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Researchers interested in the sounds of speech or the physical gestures of speakers make use of audio and video recordings in their work. Annotating these recordings presents a different set of requirements to the annotation of text. Special purpose tools have been developed to display video and audio signals and to allow the creation of time-aligned annotations. This chapter reviews the most widely used of these tools for both manual and automatic generation of annotations on multimodal data.
