• WordSend

    WordSend is a software project that allows you to convert Scripture files from Unicode USFM (and eventually from selected other formats) to other formats for the purpose of publishing those Scriptures in various print or electronic formats. Currently, the most useful transformation is the conversion of Unicode USFM to Microsoft Word 2003 (or later) XML documents (WordML) for the purpose of typesetting or printing for village checking. It is...

  • OTSoft

    Optimality Theory Software (OTSoft) - Rank constraints in Optimality Theory using a variety of algorithms.

    OTSoft is a Windows program meant to facilitate analysis in Optimality Theory by using algorithms to do tasks that are too large or complex to be done reliably by hand.  It is also meant to save time and effort, particularly in word-processing.  The following functions are supported:


  • Phonology Pad

    Use a computer to implement and check solutions to classical paradigm-based phonology problems.


    From the website referenced below:

    Phonology Pad is a program written for use in Linguistics 120A, "Phonology I", in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA.

    PhonologyPad is a program that lets you do classical phonology problems (with paradigms, underlying forms, and ordered rules).  It never tells you the answer to a problem, but it always checks your answer for...

  • IPA MSKLC Keyboard for Unicode

    This keyboard works well and is well documented. It allows you to type IPA in unicode (rather than in one of the outdated encodings), which means that you can type IPA into nearly any modern program that supports unicode. It is set up to not interfere too much with typing regular text, since with unicode it is no longer necessary to switch back and forth between encodings/fonts/keyboards.

  • Vocabulary Manager

    Vocabulary Manager is a multimedia vocabulary learning tool, like an electronic flash card system with audio. VM allows you to create a database of vocabulary items with an image and two audio recordings (one for a 'citation' form and one for the 'in context' form) for each item. As you build the database, you can practice the words, and test yourself in terms of comprehension, production, and spelling. When you want to share the database and audio and picture files, the program will package it up for easy sharing. The new users can then easily modify the database to meet...

  • Dedoose

    Dedoose is a Rich Internet Application (RIA), and runs on any computer that has a web-browser.  There is no software to download.

  • Ethnograph

    This is a program that enables an anthropological researcher to produce an ethnograph, hence its name.  The program website summarizes its role this way:

    Collect Data  + Code Data  + Write Memos + Analysis =  Ethnograph

  • Open Code

    OpenCode 3.6 is a tool for coding qualitative data generated from text information such as interviews, observations or field notes. It has been developed to specifically follow the first steps of the Grounded Theory methodology. However, it can of course be used as a tool for classifying and sorting any kind of qualitative text information. The aim has been to create a self-instructive program that is easy to learn and easy to use.

    The main features of the program are to:
    • import text from any word-processing program
    • write memos
    • find words in text

  • TECkit

    SUMMARY:  (Text Encoding Conversion kit)  A toolkit for converting plain-text files from one encoding to another (e.g. Legacy to Unicode).

    DETAILS:  TECkit is a low-level toolkit intended to be used by other applications that need to perform encoding conversions (e.g., when importing legacy data into a Unicode-based application). The primary component of the TECkit package is therefore a library that performs conversions; this is the "TECkit engine." The engine relies on mapping tables in a specific binary format (for which documentation is available...

  • Search Everything

    Search Everything is a great little utility for finding files on your computer. It only indexes the file's name. So the indexing is really quick and unnoticeable. I find it useful several times a day. Even if I know where a file is Search Everything will often get to it quicker than using Windows Explorer.
