The Bantu Literacy Tool (BLT) makes primer-making simple. It produces a tentative teaching order for graphemes, by conducting two kinds of frequency counts for each grapheme (letter, digraph or consonant cluster to be taught). It makes story-writing with a controlled vocabulary (using only letters which have been taught in the texts which accompany each lesson) a much more pleasant, creative experience than before.

The BLT software does a lot of tedious work which native authors and literacy specialists traditionally had to do themselves. Now, the author retains all his creativity but is given a list of usable words for each lesson. Each story he writes can then be checked by computer. The BLT searches the text and highlights any untaught element).

Consistent Changes is useful for finding all occurrences of specified characters, words, or phrases in a text file or series of text files, and then changing them in a consistent way. The change may be done in every occurrence found or only when certain are met.

CC is like the find-and-replace feature in a text editor, but much more powerful because it allows you to make changes which take context into consideration and to make a whole set of changes at once. Beyond the search and replace feature, CC can also be used to count items (characters, words, or phrases), insert or remove text, or reorder parts of a text file.

In order to use the CC program, you build a text file that describes the changes you want to make. This file is called a "changes tabled-deDt. You may use an existing changes table, modify an...

The Shoebox utilities are a set of command line utilities designed to enhance the power of SIL's Shoebox and Toolbox applications by providing non-trivial generic tools that work with Shoebox files.

Shoebox is a flat file database program with excellent script and language capabilities. Toolbox has taken over from the development of Shoebox. It supports Unicode and other new features.

Since much of the basic file format is the same between Shoebox and Toolbox, with Toolbox being a superset of Shoebox, the Shoebox utilities will work quite happily with Toolbox files.
