Not All E-Books Are Created Equal
Recently I've been discussing the various cool things you can do with the Tool Browser. The Tool Browser is a powerful and flexible feature of the Accordance application which interacts with the information built into each Accordance module. When we develop an Accordance module, we think long and hard about what should and should not appear in the browser. What will the user expect? Are there special circumstances we need to work around? It's part of what makes developing an Accordance module more of an art than a science.
For example, look at the browser for the NIGTC commentary. Each volume of this commentary has a lengthy title such as "The Gospel of Matthew: A Commentary on the Greek Text" or "The Epistle to the Galatians: A Commentary on the Greek Text." If we let the entire title show up in the browser, a narrow browser pane would show numerous instances of "The Gospel of" and "The Epistle of" without letting you see the actual name of the biblical book! We therefore tweaked the browser so it would give you the information you need at a glance.
It's that kind of thought that goes into the development of every Accordance module, and many of these decisions are so subtle you would never even notice them. But they are all designed to save you time and effort, to enhance your user experience, and to go beyond merely delivering an electronic copy of a book.
