Abstract

The process of transcribing and annotating non-manual features presents challenges for sign language researchers. This paper describes the approach used by our research team to integrate the Facial Action Coding System (FACS) with the EUDICO Linguistic Annotator (ELAN) program to allow us to more accurately and efficiently code non-manual features. Preliminary findings are presented which demonstrate that this approach is useful for a fuller description of facial expressions.
