Note: Different software tools provide various types of annotation and analysis functionality for audio and video. A researcher often will want to use more than one of these tools to accomplish a task. This is often hard, if not impossible, because the different tools are not designed to read each other’s data. Even if two tools, for example, had import/export capabilities that, in principle, allowed them to read each other's files, there could still be incompatibilites in the basic data models employed by each tool, causing some data to get lost or "garbled" in conversion.

Thieberger, Hinrichs, Cysouw, Sloetjes, Yi, Vaselinova, Langendoen, Beck, Anderson . 2007. Working Group 6 – Standards and Data Models . TILR Working Group July 2007 . URL

Note: The community is very small and can't create and adopt standards in the way that ISO does. In this context, standards emerge from practice so we have focused both on formal standards where they exist, but also on the most commonly used formats, usually arising from the use of particular tools, and these are the formats that should be addressed by any interchange format.
