I do not want to start any computer wars, but since Dale has joined in the
discussion, I want to second what Carl said. If I were not a Mac user, I
would become one so that I could use Accordance. It is an excellent tool for
the study of Greek and Hebrew. I use it constantly, even taking it to class
with a digital projector. With my powerbook it is fast enough that I can use
it in class without having to wait for the searches to take place. And I do
some of the searches in advance and save them. This is much quicker.

As I am sure has happened at other schools, at our school an overzealous
business manager decided we could save money if all the technology were the
same platform. So I got a notice that plans were to eliminate the use of Mac
on the college network. I took my powerbook and Accordance over to his office
and gave a demonstration. He found it incredible that I could not do that on
a PC. We still have our Macs with a promise by the administration that we
will be able to continue.

I was about to write indicating the tagging of the voice of verbs when Dale
answered. So, thanks Dale and those at Gramcord for a useful tool.
