Putting emotions and well-being into our own words #1. Presentations
Limited Capacity seats available

How do we collect emotional expressions, use them correctly, and ensure that new generations access the deeper layers of meaning they encapsulate? This workshop will bring together linguists and language workers from around the country to share practical methods for working with the language of emotions.

Elpis transcription workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

Language work often relies on having access to written forms of spoken recordings. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, the process of transcribing speech recordings can be extremely slow, and requires special skills. Languages like English or Spanish, with large collections of recorded data, can use commercial speech recognition systems to get transcriptions, rather than relying on manual processes for all the audio. There are programs around that can be used for your own language, but they are awful to install and use. Elpis is a new system which has been made for people who aren’t computer experts, to get a ‘best guess’ transcription for audio files.

Writing down recordings using ELAN
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop is focused on how to use ELAN. ELAN files creates time-aligned files so the written text matches up with the audio recording. You can use it to write down what people say and add translations too. Later you can easily find the part of the recording you need. Elan can be useful in creating electronic dictionaries, language apps and for general language study. Please bring your own laptop to the workshop, and install simple ELAN and ELAN before the workshop (https://tla.mpi.nl/tools/tla-tools/elan/download/).

Create your own online language course using the Digital Language Shell
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn how to share your language and culture online using free and open source software. The Digital Language Shell was developed to enable Indigenous language authorities to share their language and culture online. It was first implemented for a course teaching Kunwinjku language and culture from West Arnhem Land NT, in collaboration with the Bininj Kunwok Language Project.

This hands-on workshop gives participants the opportunity to learn how to implement the Digital Language Shell for their own purposes. Participants need to be familiar with basic computer use, including uploading files, creating hyperlinks, basic word processing features.

Participants wanting to create their own course need to bring their own laptop. Courses created during the workshop are temporary only and will be deleted after the event. Participants should bring some digital resources such as texts, images, video and audio recordings to populate their course.
