This is the first release of the Alpheios Reading Tools for Safari. The Chrome and Firefox extensions have been updated as well.
In addition to the support for Safari, the following features are included in this release:
  • The Inflection Table Browser has been moved to its own tab, separate from inflection tables for query results.
  • Issues with the Alpheios popup and panel styles being affected by the underlying page styles have been fixed.
  • Improved handling of panel state upon page navigation.
  • Additiional Latin irregular verb inflection tables.
Alpheios builds evidence-based, open-source software to support worldwide study of classical languages and literatures.
We will help people learn how to learn languages as efficiently and enjoyably as possible, and in a way that best helps them understand their own literary heritage and culture, and the literary heritage and culture of other peoples throughout history.
Our initial focus is on classical literature in languages no longer spoken, such as Latin and ancient Greek. The influence of these classics, like the river Alpheios, still runs like a subterranean stream deep beneath the contemporary world, as artists and thinkers continue to draw inspiration from them.
Next priorities include supporting more languages, including Persian, Syriac and Hebrew, and adding audio and imagery as well as language learning aids and games. Longer term goals include using the Alpheios platform to collect big data on how different individuals can best learn the historical languages (those without living native speakers) and appreciate their classical literature, and how this data can be interpreted neurophysiologically to shed light on human literacy and response to literature in general.
The Alpheios project uses resources from and is grateful to the following projects:
