We review existing capabilities of multi-modal annotation and analysis tools by presenting a survey of seven representative tools, and providing a sample annotation using one system. We discuss emerging requirements including handling electronic ink, eye-gaze tracking, and other time-based considerations. We briefly review aspects of empirically evaluating tool effectiveness and suggest that multimodal interfaces in future analytical tools may be desirable. We conclude by providing a tentative list of desired features for next-generation tools.
