MAE - Multipurpose Annotation Environment: lightweight, easy-to-use software written in Java for annotating written texts. Runs on most OSes (Linux, OS X, Windows XP, 7, and 8; not yet tested on Windows 10). This software was used to annotate the 2012 and 2014 i2b2 shared task corpora.

MAI - Multi-document Adjudication Interface: lightweight adjudication software that takes as input files from MAE and allows easy adjudication of different annotations to create a gold standard. Works on any systems that MAE works on.
