Special Conversion for Annotation

In some corpus productions you will use special annotation tools that require a speech file format other than the specified format. For instance in the SmartKom corpus production the annotation of speech, facial expression and gestures was done with a variety of annotation tools that each require a different input format. A considerable effort was necessary just to provide the right formats for all annotation groups.

If possible, choose your annotation tools so as to avoid such unnecessary conversions.
