Annotating Audio Visual materials with AudiAnnotate

August 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


This workshop will provide an introduction to AudiAnnotate, a free and open source tool for publishing and sharing annotations on audiovisual files. AudiAnnotate is built using minimal computing principles and the finished annotation files are all designed for longevity, a core challenge in the publication of digital scholarship outputs. This tool can be run locally when working with sensitive data but the version we use in this workshop is designed for non-sensitive data and is not FIPPA compliant. See example AudiAnnotate projects here: http://audiannotate.brumfieldlabs.com/.

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • create an AudiAnnotate project;
  • add audiovisual files to their project;
  • add annotations to an audiovisual file;
  • and publish their project to the web using GitHub pages.


Participants should have a GitHub account. To create a new one please follow the instructions on this page: https://github.com/join.

This workshop is part of the Digital Toolkit workshop series. Sign up for other topics in this series.
