ANNEX

Title

Web-based Annotation Explorer

Description

Annex (Annotation Explorer) is a web-based tool for exploring and viewing annotated multimedia recordings in an archive. ANNEX can play audio and video files in a web browser along with annotations in a variety of formats: ELAN (EAF), Shoebox/Toolbox text, CHAT (CHILDES annotation format), Plain text, CSV, PDF, SubRip, Praat TextGrid, HTML and XML. Annex will visualise the annotations in synchrony with the media files as long as time-alignment information is available. If no time-alignment information is available, a default segment duration is assumed. Annex has a graphical interface that resembles the interface of the ELAN annotation tool to some extent, with a number of different view modes such as subtitle view, timeline view and grid view. Annex runs in any modern web browser with the Adobe Flash plugin (> version 10) installed. ANNEX has been functionally extended with the help of the following CLARIN-NL-funded projects: - ColTime: Collaboration on Time-Based Resources. - EXILSEA: Exploiting ISOcat's Language Sections in ELAN and ANNEX. - MultiCon: Multilayer Concordance Functions in ELAN and ANNEX. - SignLinC: Linking lexical databases and annotated corpora of signed languages. Over the years, many funders have contributed to the development of ANNEX in several projects, such as the Volkswagen Foundation, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the the Max Planck Society.
