  • Sloetjes, H., & Seibert, O. (2016). Advancement in the multimedia annotation tool ELAN. Poster presented at the Seventh Conference of the International Society for Gesture Studies: Gesture – Creativity – Multimodality (ISGS 7), Paris, France.

    Abstract

    ELAN is a multimedia annotation tool that is being developed by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. It is a tool that is applied in various types of multimodal interaction research. This poster presents the most recent achievements in what by now is a long history of continuous tool development and support. New developments are assessment of inter-rater reliability, a commentary framework and export to Theme format.
  • Sloetjes, H., & Seibert, O. (2016). New facets of the multimedia annotation tool ELAN. Poster presented at Digital Humanities 2016 - Digital Identities: the Past and the Future, Kraków, Poland.

    Abstract

    ELAN is a multimedia annotation tool that is being developed by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. It is applied in a variety of research areas within the humanities and beyond; it can be useful in any type of research that includes audio and/or video recordings and analyzes these qualitatively or quantitatively (or both). This poster provides a general introduction to its main functionalities, with an emphasis on the latest developments. Most of these new developments have been executed within CLARIN projects in the Netherlands and in Germany.

    Abstract

    Annotation of digital recordings in humanities research still is, to a largeextend, a process that is performed manually. This paper describes the firstpattern recognition based software components developed in the AVATecH projectand their integration in the annotation tool ELAN. AVATecH (AdvancingVideo/Audio Technology in Humanities Research) is a project that involves twoMax Planck Institutes (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen,Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle) and two FraunhoferInstitutes (Fraunhofer-Institut für Intelligente Analyse- undInformationssysteme IAIS, Sankt Augustin, Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute,Berlin) and that aims to develop and implement audio and video technology forsemi-automatic annotation of heterogeneous media collections as they occur inmultimedia based research. The highly diverse nature of the digital recordingsstored in the archives of both Max Planck Institutes, poses a huge challenge tomost of the existing pattern recognition solutions and is a motivation to makesuch technology available to researchers in the humanities.
