Recording speakers of the world’s languages is fun and rewarding, but keeping all the resulting files and meta data organized? Converting files to archive formats? Transcription? Painful.
That’s why we built SayMore – to make common Language Documentation tasks fun and keep you productive.
lameta is a loving spinoff of SayMore that is maintained by a consortium of academic archiving institutions. lameta runs on Mac & windows, and is receiving more updates that SayMore. However lameta is solely for metadata. It does not have SayMore's transcription or translation features. The thinking is that people can use ELAN & Simple ELAN in combination with lameta for most mainstream transcription needs.
