Recording speakers of the world’s languages is fun and rewarding, but keeping all the resulting files and meta data organized? Converting files to archive formats? Transcription? Painful. That’s why we built SayMore – to make common Language Documentation tasks fun and to keep you productive.

Here is a sampling of SayMore's conveniences:

  • Pull the day’s recordings directly off your camera or audio device, creating Session folders for each one, or record directly into SayMore.
  • Enter meta-data about the session as a whole, and also for individual files.
  • Add any kind of file related to the session - audio and video recordings, photographs, & transcriptions.
  • Enter information about session participants.
  • Add evidence of informed consent, be it audio, video, or photographs or a signed form. 
  • Let SayMore auto-segment your media into bite-size chunks, do it by hand, or import from ELAN.
  • Transcribe & translate, then export to FLEx for interlinearization, or do further work in ELAN.
  • Enlist a native speaker to easily record Careful Speech annotations and Oral Translations.
  • Get 3-track audio combining original, careful speech, and oral translations, for free!
  • View charts and other statistics of your progress
