Dramatizer

Customarily we think of reading Scripture. How can the 60% of the world who are non-readers read Scripture in their language? If the Scripture is consultant checked, and in electronic form, and has a consistent quote system; Dramatizer can help. Dramatizer can help prepare the scripts for audio dramatized Scripture with multiple voices.

Dramatizer will automatically mark who the speaker is for 95% of the parts spoken in the Bible. (My wife, Barbe, spent over a year identifying who the first level speaker is in the whole Bible—except for Psalms and Proverbs.) Then the translator (or...

LibreOffice Linguistic Tools

This add-on inserts linguistic examples into LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice documents.  It reads XML files from FieldWorks and Toolbox.

Other features include:

  • Data Conversion using SIL Converters.
  • Manage the list of grammatical abbreviations in a document.
  • Practice learning different scripts by typing.

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
•...

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

Dedoose

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

Dedoose was designed from the ground up—by researchers, for researchers—to meet the needs of today’s social scientists working in academia, marketing, and education—virtually anyone looking for innovative software to facilitate the search for answers to research questions via qualitative or qualitative and quantitative data. These data may be numbers, scale scores, demographics, stories, fieldnotes, vignettes, interview or focus group...

C-I-SAID

 The website says this is an old program and may not work on modern operating systems. The page has a download link and an activation code for it.

C-I-SAID (Code-A-Text Integrated System for the Analysis of Interviews and Dialogues) is "a very powerful system for studying documents which integrates qualitative and quantitative methods. The source documents can be text or questionnaires, audio or video."  

C-I-SAID offers a set of unique features which allow the depth of analysis normally associated with a programme dedicated to qualitative analysis, within an analytic...

Transana

Transana is software for professional researchers who want to analyze digital video or audio data. Transana lets you analyze and manage your data in very sophisticated ways. Transcribe it, identify analytically interesting clips, assign keywords to clips, arrange and rearrange clips, create complex collections of interrelated clips, explore relationships between applied keywords, and share your analysis with colleagues. The result is a new way to focus on your data, and a new way to manage large collections of video and audio files and clips.

TAMS Analyzer

TAMS stands for Text Analysis Markup System. It is a convention for identifying themes in texts (web pages, interviews, field notes). It was designed for use in ethnographic and discourse research.

TAMS Analyzer is a program that works with TAMS to let you assign ethnographic codes to passages of a text just by selecting the relevant text and double clicking the name of the code on a list. It then allows you to extract, analyze, and save coded information. TAMS Analyzer is open source; it is released under GPL v2. The Macintosh version of the program also includes full support for transcription (back space, insert time code, jump to time code, etc.) when working with data on sound files.

MacSHAPA

MacSHAPA is a Macintosh-based software tool for performing video analysis and for applying a range of sequential data analysis techniques to the results. It is distributed free of charge to interested researchers.  MacSHAPA is no longer directly supported. However, some questions can be answered by members of the original development team. Contact [email protected] in the first instance.
