# audformat¶

Specification and reference implementation of audformat.

audformat stores media data, such as audio or video, together with corresponding annotations in a pre-defined way. This makes it easy to combine or replace databases in machine learning projects.

An audformat database is a folder that contains media files together with a header YAML file and one or several files storing the annotations. The database is represented as an audformat.Database object and can be loaded with audformat.Database.load() or written to disk with audformat.Database.save().
