We would hope to export from eaf to tab-separated without going through the GUI. Is there a way to do it via ELAN or some other interoperable program that can be used via command line?

Thank you in advance.

I’m afraid ELAN doesn’t provide any command line facilities, you would have to create such interoperable program yourself (maybe as a wrapper around ELAN functions).
You could consider extending the Pympi script (written in Python, listed on the ELAN third party resources page) with an export to tab-delimited text function?

I have probably the same request that i want to use Elan on command-line to convert transcription (transcriber) to Elan and to merge 2 files (.eaf) in only one.
I look at the Pympi scripts, I try to do mine but it was not so easy.
By chance have you try to do something like that ?
Thanks a lot

Yes, you can see our code here:
4 scripts start from eaf/ELAN to some other format. Hope this helps!
