Evolution and changes of all modern languages is a well-known fact. However, recently it is reaching dynamics never seen before,
which results in loss of the vast amount of information encoded in every language. In order to preserve such heritage, properly
annotated recordings of world languages are necessary. Since creating those annotations is a very laborious task, reaching times 100
longer than the length of the annotated media, innovative video processing algorithms are needed, in order to improve the efficiency
and quality of annotation process.
