Tachufind has not been updated for a while, it written in
Visual Basic 2010, and I am planning on doing a complete re-write of it in
either Python or Java, to make it multi-platform, as I have found Visual Basic
to be cumbersome once a project becomes larger (Tachufind presently has over
15,000 lines of code), and I want it to be available to people who are running
operating systems other than Windows!
TachuFind Color Master
elegantly simplifies coloring text in a document or language learning.
Suppose you wanted to study Latin grammar.
Using TachuFind, you can learn using colors:
Agricolae in provincia vocatis
. Poetae naturam spectant
Poetae naturam laudant
Feminae poetas laudant
. Galliam amatis
I ___ | -amus
he ___ | -atis
you ___ | -ant
you are not
restricted to one language or to using a textbook text, you can choose your own text!
At the top of
, there are color panels, if you select some text and
then click a color panel, the text changes color to the same color as the color panel. If you use the
search-color-replace screen, you can add notes as you search-color-replace, so later when you put your
mouse over the matching color panel, it provides you with a reminder of what that color signifies! This
method can work with practically any text you have, I have used it to create a mode diagram for guitar,
and it can also help if you are reading something highly technical, you can mark the new words, so you
have reminders when you see one that you forgot. In addition, this program allows you to
replace up to eight items at a time, and up to sixty-four color items at a time. Languages presently
supported are Arabic, English, French, German, Greek,
Russian, Spanish. These languages must be installed on your Windows operating system to display
properly. TachuFind will run under Windows Vista, Windows 7,
or later operating systems.
Searches can be saved and later retrieved. You can search text areas exclusively, simply by
inserting a marker around the text you are interested in editing. With
, you can search for suffixes, prefixes, within a paragraph or within a language, and
replace the normal color with the color of your choice.
is made so you can color the
items in the text that you need to learn, and disregard what you already know.
not presently contain comprehensive grammar charts for each language; however, this site will
