We present a tool for visualization of transcripts of multi-party dialogues, with application to the analysis of communication in medical teamwork. The visualization is based on a 'temporal mosaic' metaphor, which provides a temporal overview of dialogues and supports the tasks of transcript browsing and information access, by segmenting the dialogue and laying out the keywords of the different segments on interactive visual 'tiles'. The tool has been tested on a corpus of transcribed dialogues among the members of a (simulated) critical care team. An analytical evaluation is presented which demonstrates the potential uses of the tool in an educational setting and highlights areas for improvements.
