WWWTranscribe is a transcription system based on the WWW. It is platform independent and allows network access to speech databases. Its modular structure make it flexible, and it connects easily to existing signal processing applications or database management systems. WWWTranscribe consists of static HTML documents containing forms. To these forms CGI applications are attached that perform data processing and that dynamically create subsequent HTML documents. The system has been developed for the orthographic annotation of the German SpeechDat(II) telephone speech database. In its current implementation, it automatically creates SAM-PA annotation files according to the SpeechDat(II) database specifications [5], [4]. Variants of the system are being used for transcription by other SpeechDat(II) partners.
