ELAN is a professional tool that allows creating, editing, visualizing and searching for linguistic annotations attached to video and audio files. Its main purpose is for analyzing languages, sign included, and gestures but it can be expanded to other areas, such as video and audio annotation, analysis and documentation.
Intimidating looks

The interface may appear a bit complicated at first but once you go through the documentation and learn the ropes it can turn out quite easy to work with.

However, getting familiar with all its functionality does take some time because of the huge amount of data that needs to be processed. Luckily, the developer provides extensive documentation that is easy to go through.

Functions and features

The application includes support for showing audio and video signals accompanied by embedded annotations and it can also display the time corresponding to the added text.

Users can define a limitless number of annotation tiers, which can be assigned to specific time intervals in the media file.

Additional features include support for user definable Controlled Vocabularies as well as for template documents to save some time and for multi-tier regular expression searches, either in a single document or in multiple annotations.

Working with the application

The resources of the application are numerous, especially as far as annotations and tiers are concerned. When a project is loaded or created from a local media file the program displays a timeline in the lower part of the screen, which enables adding text data to a specific location and viewing the result.

Editing of the text can be done at any time and current annotations can be merged with the previous or the next one.

Conclusion

The basic functions are easy to grasp but tapping the more complex part of the application most users definitely need to turn to the documentation.

Whats New:

The main changes and new features are:

new additions provided by the Sign Language Linguistics group of the Radboud University:
an extension for setting up a connection to a Signbank lexicon
"inline" visualization of a short video connected to a lexical entry or an external controlled vocabulary entry (requires a specific syntax)
alphabetical sorting of tiers via buttons or table headers in several ShiChuang and viewers
easier access to the "Work with tier sets" flag, a "View by Tier Sets" option in the Density viewer
experimental support for spell checking based on Hunspell or a Gecco web service
batch wise updating of transcriptions after changes in external controlled vocabularies
in the Interlinearization Mode and its lexicon component:
in the lexicon properties' window custom fields can be added to a lexicon, these fields will then be available in the "Edit Entry" window and in the visible columns context menu of the lexicon table
improved keyboard navigation between annotations, also between tiers
keyboard shortcuts for the actions available for the active annotation
added margins between text of an annotation and its ‘bounding box' and around the tier names etc. Display of the bounding boxes will become optional in a next release
in the suggestion window tool tips have been added to each suggestion showing some information from the lexical entry
single file find and replace has been enabled in this mode
in Transcription Mode find and replace has been activated too, some improvements in the color coding of cells (editable/non-editable, auto create or not)
in Transcription Mode merging of annotations and undo of some actions were handled incorrectly (visualization out of sync)
the Signal Viewer can now can display wave files that are bigger than 2Gb (up to 4Gb)
in Merge Transcriptions the "Overwrite" option now also applies to annotations on Symbolic Association and -Subdivision tiers

The main fixes are:

the "Show/Hide More Tiers" window had some dependencies on the selected interface language, these are now removed
fixed writing of eaf files containing multiple locales (input methods) with the same language but different variants
when creating a copy of a tier with a different linguistic type, references from annotations to CV entries are now removed
the "Multiple File Edit" window would show an error when loading newer files, this is now fixed
after resorting the lexical entries in the table in Interlinearization mode, editing an entry would select the wrong entry
the drop down list of the inline edit box would fail in case of CV entries without a description
the .mp4 player on ShiChuang 7 (and some ShiChuang 10 systems) should work again after recompilation of a native library
in "elan.properties" a new property has been added ("JMMFPlayer.EndOfMedia.NumberOfFramesBuffer", default = 5) for setting the number of frames that is used as a "buffer" at the end of the file. The buffer is used to prevent a jump to begin of media when reaching the end.
