An easy-to-use tool for quickly annotating audio files.
<<html(<img src="" alt="screenshot" width=800>)>>
TotalRecall is designed for precise scoring and timing of participant responses during verbal tasks, especially Free Recall. However, it can be used for many kinds of audio annotation. TotalRecall displays an audio recording as a self-scrolling waveform that automatically keeps up with audio playback.
TotalRecall is used on a daily basis by many in the Computational Memory Lab. Support and maintenance will continue indefinitely with new features being added as needed.

TotalRecall currently runs on Mac OSX and Linux, with a Windows version to be released shortly. We plan to test and support these configurations, but the program should run on others.
TotalRecall requires a Java Runtime Environment, version 5 or higher. Most computers come with Java pre-installed, so you can probably download and run the program without worrying about system requirements. If it turns out you don't have Java, you can download it free here.
