Introduction

ANNEMO (ANNotating EMOtions) is an open-source web-based annotation tool of affective and social behaviors from audiovisual data.

In this tool, the annotator has to log in a web-based annotation interface by using a unique identifier. The interface is split vertically in two parts: a scrolling list of the audiovisual recordings is given on the left side, whereas the video and the annotation cursor are displayed one below the other on the right side of the window.

The dimension to be annotated can be defined by the user, e.g., arousal or valence for affect, and annotation is performed by moving an horizontal slider while watching the video; annotation values are continuously store on the server with the corresponding time in the video. For convenience, annotators are allowed to use a control panel to eventually stop and restart the annotation at a given time. Categorical annotation, e.g., social dimensions such as agreement, dominance, engagement, performance and rapport, are performed using a 7-Likert scale. All annotation data are automatically saved on a server as log files.
