• 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...

  • XeTeX

    SUMMARY:  A Unicode typesetting system based on TeX

    DETAILS:  XeTeX is a typesetting system based on a merger of Donald Knuth's TeX system with Unicode and modern font technologies and is still in the experimental stage of its development.

    XeTeX is a command-line tool, like standard TeX and pdfTeX processors. It is most commonly used via a graphical environment such as TeXShop (Mac OS X), KILE (Linux), WinEDT (Windows), or others.

  • FieldWorks Data Notebook

    In the FieldWorks suite of applications, Data Notebook was the first major product released, and it's probably the most polished. DN and FLEx have a similar look and feel, but DN is simpler (fewer "moving parts").

    As you experience various cultural events, you may want to jot down some notes on paper, but even so you should type up the event as soon as possible so that when you or someone else reads it much later, it will make sense. You should probably also mark the event write-up in DN with metadata and all relevant OCM codes before considering the write-up to be complete.

  • Simple Bible Reader Converter

  • 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.

  • 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
