In the opening Welcome Screen, click "Login". You have two options to login to the TextGridLab.


You can register for an individual TextGrid account from the TextGrid website (www.textgrid.de). After your registration has been confirmed, you will receive an e-mail containing your access information. With your TextGrid account you can login to the TextGridLab.



After you are successfully authenticated with your login name and your password, your user ID will be shown in the status bar in the lower right corner of the TextGridLab. In addition, your user ID will be displayed on the Welcome Screen next to the Login symbol. Now you are connected to the virtual research environment TextGrid and can utilize the TextGridLab.


Alternatively, you can authenticate with the login of your institution if your university participates in the DFN-AAI federation. After choosing your institution from the drop-down menu, you will be forwarded to the login page of your institution and can authenticate with your usual user account.
 


After your first login, you will be asked to complete your user information and to accept the TextGrid Terms of Use. If you choose the option "Searchable", other TextGrid users will be able to find you by searching for your name, institution or e-mail address. The fields with an asterisk (*) are mandatory. You can change your user information at any time via "Help > Authentication" in the menu bar.
 


If you have logged in with a TextGrid account for the first time, you should change your password via "Help > Authentication" in the menu bar. Choose "Change Password" and login with your user name and your old password. Then you can enter a new password and confirm your input. You can change your password this way at any time.
