Some examples of  the transcribed data.

To view the data, just click on one of the links below.  Correlation files 1 and 2 are the same .wav file transcribed by both transcribers.  These and others were used to to transcriber agreement calculations.

The files are best viewed in 2 second intervals.  The duration and start time for each file can be changed once the waveform and transcription are up.  (i.e. Click on one of the links.  When the page is done loading, you will be able to adjust the duration/start time.)  The '>' moves the starttime ahead .2 seconds, while the '>>' moves the start time ahead by 1 second.  The '<' and '<<' perform similar functions.
