DEPiCTed is an annotation tool specifically developed for the DEPiCT project by Magnus Nissel.
DEPiCTed is an easy to use and intuitive tool which allows each contributor to annotate the text for meta-linguistic and linguistic information. The tool will ensure a consistent annotation of texts among all contributors to make it maximally cross-comparable with all other text and to be integrated in the final database.
- intuitive in that is has a menu-driven Graphic User Interface (GUI) which guides the user through the annotation steps
- ensures straightforward editing in that it automatically checks the status of the XML and flags what type of error occurred when relevant; no prior knowledge of mark-up language is thus required of the user.
The tool is platform independent and available for free.
