Software

  • Audacity

    An audio editor that runs on all major platforms. It is oriented more toward music than phonetics and has only limited analysis tools. However, it can do noise reduction and has some useful editing tools, including the ability to modify individual samples and to change the amplitude envelope.

  • ParaTExt Lexicon Extraction Tool

    Utility that extracts the word forms, morphemes and their glosses from the lexicon.xml file generated by the project interlinearizer in ParaTExt and converts them into a Standard Format file that can then be imported into a Fieldworks database.

    The glosses can be in more than one writing system, but the receiving Fieldworks project must already be configured for those writing sytems before the import is begun. 

    If the resulting SFM file is importing data into an Fieldworks database that already has data, then the possibility of having duplicate headwords is very likely.

  • Webonary

    Webonary gives language groups the ability to put their bilingual or multilingual dictionaries on the web with a minimum of technical help. Each dictionary is built around a search bar, which looks for a word throughout the dictionary, and returns the most relevant results to the top of the list.
