Spoken corpora of the future will be annotated at multiple levels of linguistic organization largely through automatic methods using a combination of sophisticated signal processing, statistical classifiers and expert knowledge. It is important that annotation tools be adaptable to a wide range of languages and speaking styles, as well as readily accessible to the speech research and technology communities around the world. This latter objective is of particular importance for minority languages, which are less likely to foster development of sophisticated speech technology without such universal access.
