PalmSurv (Endorsed)

Current version: 1.6, released Dec. 2005

PalmSurv will take the place of paper and pen in word list elicitation by enabling a surveyor to transcribe word lists directly onto their PalmOS handheld computer. Different views of the data will allow the surveyor to visually compare word lists and scroll through forms elicited in the language being researched. The word list data can then be transferred to a desktop computer via HotSync.

PalmSurv is designed only as the data collection front-end for WordSurv and does not do any statistical analysis of the data collected.
