The guys from EXMARaLDA basically are popular for their development of EXMARaLDA (Amazing, isn’t it?). EXMARaLDA is “a system of concepts, data formats and tools for the computer assisted transcription and annotation of spoken language, and for the construction and analysis of spoken language corpora.” Today, we stumbled upon their Linguistic Annotation Wiki.

The program is freely available, you only have to registrate. It looks tidy, not oversized and suitable for transcription purposes. Eventually we will have more news on Folker at this lieu.
