Abstract

Four diverse tools built on the Annotation Graph Toolkit are described. Each tool associates linguistic codes and structures with timeseries data. All are based on the same software library and tool architecture. TableTrans is for observational coding, using a spreadsheet whose rows are aligned to a signal. MultiTrans is for transcribing multi-party communicative interactions recorded using multi-channel signals. InterTrans is for creating interlinear text aligned to audio. TreeTrans is for creating and manipulating syntactic trees. This work demonstrates that the development of diverse tools and re-use of software components is greatly facilitated by a common highlevel application programming interface for representing the data and managing input/output, together with a common architecture for managing the interaction of multiple components.
