The transcription is the written image of the sound (vocal languages) or gestural (sign languages, gestural) continuum. It can be orthographic, phonetic or (morpho-) phonological, and can contain perilinguistic information (laughs, contextual indications, etc.). The transcription is associated with a sound file or a video file. The transcription is a particular instance of the annotation, distinct from the gloss.
