Data Browser

We transformed all PDTSC 1.0 data into HTML files (including audio playback), so that you can view them in your internet browser. You can navigate through them easily in our data browser, written entirely using standard web technologies. This is the best choice if you want to have just a quick look at the data.


MEd was our annotation tool and it can be also used to browse the data. It works directly with the PML data format, which is the native format of the PDTSC 1.0 data. If you aim to do some serious work with the data, you will most probably be using MEd. It is written in Perl, so you need to have Perl installed to run it. Please follow the installation instructions on the MEd project pages.

The data in the PML format are stored in the directory data. All PML files are gzipped, but there is no need to uncompress them because MEd has no problems opening gzipped files. It is even faster than opening uncompressed plain text files.

The PML schemata describing the data format are stored in the directory schemata.


Transcriber was used for the manual transcription of the dialogs.
