Hi all,

So for reasons I can’t quite figure out yet, I can’t run reliability on two files I have. The “error” message I get is this: “Warning:
Operation interrupted: There are no segments for the agreement calculation, process stopped.” I know that this isn’t the case, as opening both files separately, you can clearly see each has its own set of segments.

Has anyone else encountered this before? Any advice as to what might be the problem?

Much appreciated.

Could it be that this has to do with the settings for pairing files and/or pairing tiers? Is there any more information concerning the problem in the log after the warning message (View->View Log…)?

Hi Han,

Thanks so much for replying! I don’t think it’s the tier pairing, as we’ve done the same process for other files without error and the tiers are currently matched by name. I checked the log and what it said was that there were consistency errors within the transcription, with an end time before the starting time in one of our tiers. I checked the file and that doesn’t seem to be the case, but any suggestions you would have would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, not sure if such an error (end time < begin time) can cause the comparison to completely fail, but it seems that’s the only clue we’ve got.
Are you sure there is no such error in the file? Did you check e.g. in the Grid viewer (where a negative duration can often easily be detected)?
