Following the model of the EMELD project and the subsequent meeting Digital Tools Summit in Linguistics this workshop aims to bring together practitioners who are building tools or methods that will facilitate the work of creating good language documentation. Are there tools we need but do not have? Can we adapt current tools to fill these gaps?
A list of tools we are aware of appear below and we hope that the workshop will reveal yet more.
