IPSyn coding

A recent graduate at my University created an automatic IPSYN calculator as
part of her dissertation:

Hassanali, K. N., Liu, Y., Iglesias, A., Solorio, T., & Dollaghan, C.
(2013). Automatic generation of the index of productive syntax for child
language transcripts. *Behavior research methods*, 1-9.

I did some work in that lab with CHAT formatted transcripts, so her program
may take this type of transcript as input. I haven't read the article, so I
can't comment on the accuracy of the IPSYN annotating.

(As this is my first time posting, and I apologize in advance if this
is inappropriate.)
