Japanese Spoken Language Port


The JSL CD-ROM was a massive project from Yale University that covered important topics in conversational Japanese. When Yale discontinued supporting the software, Devin Asay of ODH obtained permission to port the content over to newer platforms so that the BYU Japanese program could continue using it. Several BYU students assisted in converting the video materials from the original laser disks, extracting data and content, and prototyping the ported project in LiveCode. This project allowed it to be used until 2016 when the Japanese program ceased using it in their program.
