The copy task is available in ten languages, including now also Norwegian.
A heartfelt thank you to Anne Sætersdal Myklestad & Vibeke Ronneberg (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences & University of Stravanger, Norway). They were so kind to design the Norwegian copy task.
Have a look?
In Inputlog 8.05 we are happy to introduce the following improvements:
- Pause analysis: the algorithm to define P-bursts has been refined;
- Revision analysis: the identification of ‘normal production bursts’ has been improved;
- Fluency analysis: the time labeling of intervals has been corrected;
- Source analysis: the recoding log file can now also be imported to correct and optimize your recoding frame.
From now on, the copy task is also available in Portuguese.
A heartfelt thank you to Teresa Limpo (University of Porto). She was so kind to design the Portuguese copy task.
In view of the release of Inputlog 8 and of the SIG Writing Conference later this month, we figured the website could do with a makeover.
The new website does not only have a new look that is also fit for mobile devices, it also contains some new content. Have fun exploring! If you discover any hiccups, please let us know.
We are happy to release Inputlog version 8.0. This version is a major update of the program, and guarantees upward compatibility.
Extra features include:
- Inputlog is optimized for Windows 10.
- A standardized copy task has been added and is now available in eight languages. The analysis of this task enables researchers to characterize motoric and low level processes from different perspectives (e.g., with respect to bigram frequency, task complexity, keyboard layout).
