Description In this paper, we introduce a new version of the Simple QuestionAnswering Databases (SQAD). The main asset of the new version lies inincreasing the number of records to a total of 13,473 records. Besides thedatabase enlargement, the new version incorporates new restrictions ofspecifying different formats of the expected answer for a given question.These new restrictions are connected with automatic database consistencychecks where new sub-processes safeguard the database correctness andconsistency.We also introduce a new on-line annotation tool used which offered aunified environment for extending the SQAD data in a crowdsourcingexperiment.
