Miqra according to the Masorah

Is someone at Accordance interested in "rebooting" the idea of making a module for Miqra according to the Masorah (MAM)?


 


I've recently completed an export of MAM for Sefaria, E.g. here's a fun verse, Esther 9.9 that shows lots of whiz-bang features.


 


Hopefully MAM's existence in Sefaria would not diminish the value of also having it in Accordance.

Thanks for supporting Sefaria  :)

That would be great (and I do support Sefaria - very much so)

Thanks everyone for your interest.

 

By the way I forgot to mention that I'm volunteering to do the programming to export MAM in a format that is easily importable by Accordance.

 

I.e. this wouldn't take much effort on the part of Accordance, other than to help me figure out what format they need it in.

@R. Mansfield you were so helpful in merging my accounts... any chance you could help me figure out who, if anyone, would be interested in discussing my proposal for a MAM module for Accordance? Some work was done on this several years ago by @Helen Brown but my understanding is she has retired from Accordance. Mikhal Oren ז״ל worked on it also but she has, most untimely, passed away since then.

Update: Miqra According to the Masorah is now the default Tanakh on Sefaria.

 

Here is a PDF on my Microsoft OneDrive describing the ways in which its encoding (its HTML & Unicode) differ from Sefaria's former default Tanakh.

 

As I said before, I'd be glad to help "port" MAM to Accordance if there is interest.

Yes, interest here.

So I guess my question is, how can find out if there is enough user interest in MAM to make it worth it for someone inside OakTree to help me know how to format it so that it could become an Accordance module?

 

I guess the fact that this idea (MAM for Accordance) was once pursued inside OakTree is encouraging, but the people involved are no longer at the company (indeed, sadly, one has passed away).

You can use a poll.  Start a new topic, and select "Poll" (see attached screenshot).  This will allow users who are interested to respond, and keep a tally.

Good to know about the poll feature! Probably I'm overthinking it, but I wonder what the question(s) and choice(s) should be. Some ideas:

 

  1. Question: Are you interested in MAM being available as an Accordance Module. Choices (1): "Yes" (I.e. lacking a "no" choice.)
  2. Question: Are you interested in MAM being available as an Accordance Module. Choices (2): Yes or No
  3. Question: Are you interested in MAM being available as an Accordance Module. Choices (3): Yes but only if it is free, Yes and I'd even be willing to pay for it, or No.

Personally, I would think: 1) Are you interested at all (Yes / No)?  2) Would you be willing to pay for it? (Yes / No)

Great, thanks for your input @TYA. Based on your input, I created the following poll:
