Field Works Language Explorer (FLEX): supports structured information for building a lexicon. It’s also a text database, and manages morphological information. FLEX can automatically generate morphological analyses. Future plans include phonology, syntax, spell-checking, and other features. Good tool for personal learning, and for managing linguistic data. Since the data is stored in a server, collaboration is possible.
Dramatizer helps in creating audio versions of Biblical texts by indicating who said what, preparing scripts, and helping with the audio recording. Character names are assigned to each clip of Scripture (4-6k in a New Testament). Walk-through of the operation of the program. It generates a master script, as well as secondary scripts for each speaker to practice their parts. Then it assists in the recording process, and in assembling the audio. Looking at hand-crank/solar MP3 players.
Code can be downloaded from Google. Some related activity by a group called “Faith By Hearing”.
