Code-A-Text A commercial software system to code and analyze texts and recordings. The software package was written to help in the training of psychotherapists. It was originally designed to facilitate the analysis of therapeutic conversations where clinicians, teachers and research workers wanted to understand the ideas and structures underlying the "texts". Recently, Code-A-Text has been applied to other types of "texts", including process (field notes), responses to open ended questionnaires and reports. Code-A-Text supports the coding of documents, transcripts or sound files. The multimedia version also supports video and pictures.
