What is audio annotation?

The technique of labelling or marking audio data with descriptive metadata to facilitate its comprehension, analysis, and use is known as an audio annotation. Raw audio files are turned into valuable datasets by careful annotation, which makes it easier for machine learning algorithms to identify patterns, extract useful information, and increase accuracy in a variety of applications.
