VersaText combines features of two online text tools, Concordle and Vocabulary Profiler:
Concordle was created by Ladislav Kolbach, a Czech physicist working at the University of Bergen in Norway. More information about his program is available at its blog.
VersaText was created by James Thomas and Vít Baisa. James Thomas, the author and/or editor-publisher of the books on this website, has been using word clouds, Concordle and Vocabulary Profiler with his students and teachers for many years. He also uses SkELL extensively with teachers and students. Vít Baisa, the main programmer of SkELL, offered to bring James' dream of combining and extending Concordle and Vocabulary Profiler to life. Vít has not only programmed it, but has inspired aspects of it not previously imagined.
