SALT Research for Windows® and Mac expands the Clinical version to include tools for processing large data sets. Export data from SALT in a format that can be read by other programs such as SPSS®, SAS®, Excel® and Access®. Select from all of the SALT analysis variables as well as from the frequency of any word, morpheme, or code. Take advantage of SALT's flexible coding options to flag specific words or utterances. Then use SALT Research to tabulate these codes across your data set.
Training: Direct your lab staff to our free self-paced online training to become trained transcribers.
Purchasing SALT for your research lab: The majority of time is typically spent on data entry compared to extracting the data for analysis. Consider purchasing multiple copies of SALT Clinical to install on your lab computers for data entry and one or two copies of SALT Research for both data entry and analysis.
The Research software license is for a single user. The software may either be activated on one shared computer, e.g., in a lab or shared office space, or on up to two computers used only by one person, e.g., home and office. If it is installed on a network, controls must be in place to restrict access to one user at a time.
The SALT Textbook is included as a PDF file with your software purchase. This textbook provides the conceptual background of LSA, practical guidelines for using SALT, and extensive appendices for quick reference to all the database protocols, transcription conventions, special coding, and more. The software and the PDF textbook are immediately available for download. A printed copy of this book may be purchased separately for $20.
