SignStream (Carol Neidle, Dawn MacLaughlin)
The SignStream project aims to develop a database tool for transcription and analysis of video-based language data (particularly, signed language data). SignStream allows a user to enter data into any number of user-definable fields, where each datum is associated with a start and end frame of a video. Although a SignStream database is stored in a non-readable, binary format, the program includes a text export feature. However, there is no import feature. The program is currently being distributed at cost to researchers, educators, and students.
