We describe the way we adapted a text analysis tool for annotating with the Linguistic Description Scheme of MPEG-7 text related to and extracted from multimedia content. Practically applied in the DIRECT-INFO EC R&D project we show how such linguistic annotation contributes to semantic annotation of multimodal analysis systems, demonstrating also the use of the XML schema of MPEG-7 for supporting cross-media semantic content annotation.
