Cooperation

  • Maciej Karpiński – co-operation as regards the basic functional requirements for the program’s interface, and ergonomics. The idea of the SRMA plugin. Testing.
  • Dafydd Gibbon – Time Group Analysis –  TGA concept and collaboration as regards implementation of its selected functions in Annotation Pro. Invaluable collaboration and dissemination advice.
  • Hanna Kuczka – implementation of Java f0 extraction class (using PYIN method as in Mauch & Dixon) used as the starting point for the development of a corresponding C# class used in Annotation Pro.
  • Agnieszka Wagner – co-operation as regards the use cases for graphical representations of the feature spaces (Emotion Categories, Prosody Perception, Voice Quality), and the initial functional requirements for Perception Test Options.
  • Magdalena Oleśkowicz-Popiel – testing.
  • Jolanta Bachan – it’s just business Jola : ) thanks for drawing attention to the .ANT vs. TextGrid format issue.
  • Jan Oliver Rüdiger – development of import / export of .ANT files to / from CorpusExplorer (on-going, see also here).
  • & of course: Wojciech Klessa – programming & invaluable development advice.
