Gabmap is a free web-based application for dialectometry. It measures the differences in sets of phonetic (or phonemic) transcriptions via edit distance. Gabmap has a graphical user interface that makes string comparison facility available as a web application. This enables wider experimentation with the techniques.


The Transcription Quality Evaluation tool can be used to check the quality of phonetic transcription. The only thing the researcher has to do is upload pairs of files consisting of an audio file and a transcription file. After uploading he’ll receive an e-mail with the matching output.
