Hi Athina,
Voyant is a good tool for getting started ( ). Do you program in Python or R? I have some additional suggestions if so.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Keyword Extraction from Text

Hi everyone,

I'm starting to think around a project that would involve key terms from other types of text (transcripts, captions, documents). I'm basically trying to build a tool that I can use to extra key terms from larger strings of text, i.e. pull out the important words from a larger sentence.

Does anyone have recommendations for tools that already exist out there?


PS- I'm thinking specifically about state K-12 educational standards, if anyone wants to talk more specifically with me.
