To this end, lots of retinal samples have been collected and imaged by microscope, and now its your job to make sense of these pictures.

|SMALLab is an extensible platform for semi-immersive, mixed-reality learning. By semi-immersive, we mean that the mediated space of SMALLab is physically open on all sides to the larger environment. Participants can freely enter and exit the space without the need for wearing specialized display or sensing devices such as head-mounted displays (HMD) or motion capture markers. Participants seated or standing around SMALLab can see and hear the dynamic media, and they can directly communicate with their peers that are interacting in the space. As such, the semi-immersive framework establishes a porous relationship between SMALLab and the larger physical learning environment. By mixed-reality, we mean that there is an integration of physical manipulation objects, 3D physical gestures, and digitally mediated components. By extensible, we mean that researchers, teachers, and students can create new learning scenarios in SMALLab using a set of custom designed authoring tools and programming interfaces.

|SMALLab is an extensible platform for semi-immersive, mixed-reality learning. By semi-immersive, we mean that the mediated space of SMALLab is physically open on all sides to the larger environment. Participants can freely enter and exit the space without the need for wearing specialized display or sensing devices such as head-mounted displays (HMD) or motion capture markers. Participants seated or standing around SMALLab can see and hear the dynamic media, and they can directly communicate with their peers that are interacting in the space. As such, the semi-immersive framework establishes a porous relationship between SMALLab and the larger physical learning environment. By mixed-reality, we mean that there is an integration of physical manipulation objects, 3D physical gestures, and digitally mediated components. By extensible, we mean that researchers, teachers, and students can create new learning scenarios in SMALLab using a set of custom designed authoring tools and programming interfaces.

|f4 supports your transcription process, meaning your personal typing of video or audio recordings from interview situations. It simplifies the transcription work as you can slow down the playback speed, control via keys (also while using Word), (automatically) insert time markers and auto text via key combinations. Moreover, the audio stream is automatically rewinded a few seconds when pressing the Stop key.

|f5 is the Mac version of f4, our standard program for scientific transcription. f5 reads audio files and video files, and considerably alleviates the transcription of interviews. f5 is a program which supports the transcription progress, the progress of manually writing down interview situations from video or audio files. Your work is alleviated by f5, because it slows down the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can control the playback with a footswitch or shortcuts. Whenever you pause the playback, f5 automatically rewinds it. An innovative function of f5 is that it synchronises your text with your current media file by adding a cue point to every paragraph. This allows you to directly jump to the passage you want to replay.

|VoiceWalker is a transcriber's tool, designed to help you transcribe audio or video recordings. VoiceWalker lets you play back the sound in a controlled way, with the benefit of being able to systematically step (or "walk") through a recording, repeating short segments for a specified number of repetitions, then moving on to the next segment. The segments overlap, so that the transcriber does not become disoriented. VoiceWalker assumes that you have digitized your recordings as computer files to work with them more easily (for information on how to digitize, see the VoiceWalker manual). VoiceWalker is free, available for Windows only.

|f4 is our free transcription software for audio and video recordings
 
|http://www.audiotranskription.de/english/f5
 
|
 
|
 
|
 
|f4 supports your transcription process, meaning your personal typing of video or audio recordings from interview situations. It simplifies the transcription work as you can slow down the playback speed, control via keys (also while using Word), (automatically) insert time markers and auto text via key combinations. Moreover, the audio stream is automatically rewinded a few seconds when pressing the Stop key.

|f5 - free transcription software for Mac
 
|http://www.audiotranskription.de/english/f5
 
|
 
|
 
|
 
|f5 is the Mac version of f4, our standard program for scientific transcription. f5 reads audio files and video files, and considerably alleviates the transcription of interviews. f5 is a program which supports the transcription progress, the progress of manually writing down interview situations from video or audio files. Your work is alleviated by f5, because it slows down the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can control the playback with a footswitch or shortcuts. Whenever you pause the playback, f5 automatically rewinds it. An innovative function of f5 is that it synchronises your text with your current media file by adding a cue point to every paragraph. This allows you to directly jump to the passage you want to replay.

|VoiceWalker - Transcription in Action - RESOURCES FOR THE REPRESENTATION OF LINGUISTIC INTERACTION
 
|http://www.linguistics.ucsb.edu/projects/transcription/tools.html
 
|Department of Linguistics, University of California, Santa Barbara
 
|
 
|
 
|VoiceWalker is a transcriber's tool, designed to help you transcribe audio or video recordings. VoiceWalker lets you play back the sound in a controlled way, with the benefit of being able to systematically step (or "walk") through a recording, repeating short segments for a specified number of repetitions, then moving on to the next segment. The segments overlap, so that the transcriber does not become disoriented. VoiceWalker assumes that you have digitized your recordings as computer files to work with them more easily (for information on how to digitize, see the VoiceWalker manual). VoiceWalker is free, available for Windows only.
