    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    TAMS stands for Text Analysis Markup System which enables you to identify themes in texts like web pages, interviews and field notes and was designed for use in ethnographic and discourse research. The project window in TAMS is tabbed to manage different aspects of qualitative work and offers tools for managing such as adding, creating, and grouping files in the project. TAMS also lets you move files into a search list and then it is used to mine a data set for information. When you initiate searches from the project window, it creates a result window which are flat file databases consisting of one row per coded passage which includes the text that has been coded and any information affiliated with the coded passage, as well as an index of that data in the original file. Document windows which appear when you double click rows have codes on the left side, and a Quicktime player to attach multimedia files with the transcript. The Quicktime player serves as a full featured transcription machine where documents like text, rtf, or rtfd files and media are linked to each other through time codes.
