Abstract

This paper presents the result of a usability test of an annotation tool. The annotation tool is implemented, used and tested in a cultural heritage context (CH), the TORCH project at the Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Science. The experiments employed non-experts with the intention of facilitating for crowd-sourcing of annotations. Interesting problems and usability patterns from the literature manifest in our experiments. Despite some weaknesses in the interface of the tool version used for the experiments, the annotators show a reasonable rate of success
