Wizard of Oz (WOZ) prototyping employs a human wizard to simulate anticipated functions of a future system. In Natural Language Processing this method is usu- ally used to obtain early feedback on di- alogue designs, to collect language cor- pora, or to explore interaction strategies. Yet, existing tools often require complex client-server configurations and setup rou- tines, or suffer from compatibility prob- lems with different platforms. Integrated solutions, which may also be used by de- signers and researchers without technical
