Design of a Transcription Tool for the Kelabit Community of Bario, Sarawak
Keywords:Transcription Tool, Kelabit Language, PRISMA,
AbstractThis paper describes the design of a transcription tool developed for the Kelabit community of Bario, Sarawak based on the community’s requirements and feedbacks. Transcribing is the process of making a full written copy of spoken or dictated material. Using this transcription tool, users can listen to audio files of recordings and proceed to do the transcribing within the tool itself. Afterwards, they can save the transcription into text files for future uses. Users can control the audio file while it is playing, and do updating or editing to the transcription. This project was carried out on the motivation to assist in language preservation works as Kelabit is an underresourced language.
