Frequently Asked Questions

This is an extension to the regular FAQ

  • Sentence Analysis: Accepted formats
    The various input and upload fields expect plain text in UTF-8 encoding. Meta-data fields and SGML/HTML/XML may distort your result, if it even goes through parsing in the first place.
  • Can I get an offline version of the tools?
    The VISL tools are available for commercial purposes through a small private company called GrammarSoft ApS. Contact Eckhard Bick for details.
  • CQP Refine: Hitting 'Search' does nothing
    If nothing happens when you hit Search from the Refine (Java) interface, try disabling any pop-up blocking software. Certain firewalls may include pop-up blocking; we have seen Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm misidentify the Java redirect for a pop-up and subsequently block the request completely.
  • How is different from
    Beta, alias Sandbox, is our front-edge development machine. It is where we experiment with the latest and greatest, which results in newer and more powerful tools, but at the same time less stable.
  • I keep getting "403 Forbidden" errors
    There could be numerous reasons for this. First of all, you may simply have tried to access one of our internal pages. However, if you are getting a Forbidden page by trying to parse your text, this could be due to mod_security which we employ to block certain intrusion attempts. Please let us know if you believe that is the case.
