 TableTrans is open source software for transcribing audio recordings
 using a spreadsheet.  A screenshot of the tool is available here:

   (Marta Manser's meerkat annotations)
 Each spreadsheet row is aligned with an audio segment, and whenever a
 spreadsheet row is selected, the corresponding audio segment is
 highlighted.  The columns of the spreadsheet are user-configurable, and
 clicking on a column sorts all rows according to the entries in that
 column.  The audio resides in a single file, and the tool can create sets
 of sound clips based on annotations selected by the user.  The spreadsheet
 can be exported in various formats for external statistical analysis.
 The tool is being used by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania
 and elsewhere to code extended field recordings of animal vocalizations.
 The tool was written in Python and C++, and is part of the Annotation Graph
 Toolkit - software infrastructure for signal annotation tools.  The work is
 part of the Talkbank project (, funded by the US National
 Science Foundation.
 Supported audio formats: WAV, AU, AIFF, MP3, CSL, SD, Ogg/Vorbis, NIST/Sphere 
 Supported platforms: Windows, Unix
 Coming soon: video support
 TableTrans is free, and distributed under an open source license.
