The Linguist's Shoebox
Integrated data management and analysis for the field linguist
Installing additional memory in your computer can increase the speed and capacity of Shoebox.
The memory requirements (RAM) depend on the version of Windows or Macintosh, the requirements of other programs that you use, and the amount of data you will store in Shoebox. In general, a computer that runs Microsoft Office comfortably will be able to run Shoebox with a typical set of databases. When Shoebox cannot load all the data into physical RAM, it will begin to access virtual memory. When this happens, many operations will be noticeably slower.
