Bereits am 04. Mai erhielten wir eine Mail von Han Sloetjes, dem Entwickler von ELAN am Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Darin gab er den ersten Release von ELAN simple bekannt, einer abgespeckten Version von ELAN. Verfügbar für Mac, Windows und Linux. Aber lest selbst in English:

“Simple-ELAN has a limited set of functions. It’s goal is to support easy transcription of audio and video recordings, in principle on a single layer (tier). It can be used for relatively coarse grained scene-level transcription, for per speaker speech transcription or for aligning existing transcripts to their digitized audio/video source.

The main characteristic is that of simultaneous segmentation and transcription; pressing the Enter key creates a new segment based on the current media time and at the same time applies the current text of the editor to the newly created annotation.”

Wem der Funktionsumfang von ELAN immer etwas zu weit ging und die vielen Knöpfe viel zu sehr ablenkten, der möge doch die einfache Version ausprobieren.
