Backbone Annotator in a nutshell
Backbone Annotator enables teachers and researchers to annotate text with information which goes beyond its boundaries. The tag set used can be easily customized according to the specific needs of the user. This feature turns Backbone Annotator into an extremely generic tool since literally any kind of information could be attached to the text.
The output of Backbone Transcriptor can be used by Backbone Search Tool.
