WAT-SL: A Customizable Web Annotation Tool for Segment Labeling

Johannes Kiesel, Henning Wachsmuth, Khalid Al-Khatib, Benno Stein


Abstract
A frequent type of annotations in text corpora are labeled text segments. General-purpose annotation tools tend to be overly comprehensive, often making the annotation process slower and more error-prone. We present WAT-SL, a new web-based tool that is dedicated to segment labeling and highly customizable to the labeling task at hand. We outline its main features and exemplify how we used it for a crowdsourced corpus with labeled argument units.
