A high speed transcription interface for annotating primary linguistic data. In Proceedings of 6th Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities
(pp. 7-12). Stroudsburg, PA: Association for Computational Linguistics.
We present a new transcription mode for the annotation tool ELAN. This mode is designed to speed up the process of creating transcriptions of primary linguistic data
(video and/or audio recordings of linguistic behaviour). We survey the basic transcription workflow of some commonly used tools (Transcriber, BlitzScribe, and ELAN) and describe how the new transcription interface
improves on these existing implementations.
We describe the design of
the transcription interface and explore some further possibilities for improvement in the areas of segmentation and computational
enrichment of annotations.
