Transcript Analyzer

The Linked Jazz Transcript Analyzer structures digital archival documents for different purposes and identifies named entities in texts. In the context of the project, we use the Analyzer to upload interview transcripts from open access archives and to identify personal names cited in interview transcripts by leveraging the above-mentioned Linked Jazz Name Directory. The analyzer also employs natural language processing to locate names that are not present in the directory. In these instances, we relate the newly found names to URIs from the name authority files, or, if the name is not found in the authorities, we mint new URIs that we then host on the Linked Jazz namespace. Finally, the analyzer tool breaks interview transcripts down into discrete segments of questions and answers, which are later employed in the Linked Jazz 52nd Street tool.
