Developing a suite of mobile applications for collaborative language documentation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Paper published in Proceedings

Abstract

Mobile web technologies offer new prospects for developing an integrated suite of language documentation software. Much of this software will operate on devices owned by speakers of endangered languages. We report on a series of prototype applications that support a range
of documentary activities. We present ongoing work to design an architecture that involves reusable components that share a common storage model and application programming interface. We believe this approach will open the way for a suite of mobile apps, each having a specific purpose and audience, and each enhancing the quality and quantity of documentary products in different ways.
