Synchrotext provides an editor with a tool to combine recorded performances with transcriptions, translations, and commentaries that are informed by experts from a local community. Combining a performer's art with an informed audience's understanding, Synchrotext is designed to preserve, valorize, and teach the richness of local languages and oral literary styles. It should prove useful in a variety of fields, including oral history, oral literature, performance studies, visual anthropology, film history, language instruction, dance analysis, culinary arts, and distance learning.

The free, online Synchrotext player can be seen at The easy-to-use editor can be licensed without cost by an individual or institution for the non-commercial safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage. Commercial licenses are also available. See the site for more details.
