IN-SPIRE™ Visual Document Analysis

Training and Support

On-line Help

We have developed some materials to make it easier to begin using IN-SPIRE. See IN-SPIRE™ Help for an illustrated and annotated guide to icons, windows, and menus. There are also a series of video tutorials on this website.

On-site Training

While it is not unusual for an analyst to start using IN-SPIRE™ without any technical training or support, most users will benefit from a short training session that covers the key aspects of using the tool. Training sessions usually consist of a 4-6 hour hands-on class that covers the general capabilities of the system along with tips and techniques for data import and analysis. Classes are usually held at the user's site and are not covered by the service fee or licensing fee paid to acquire the software.

In some cases, an organization may have greater support needs, such as datasets that require some level of pre-processing in order to extract the desired fielded information or convert from unsupported formats (e.g., HTML to ASCII). PNNL can assist in these cases as well, on a time and materials basis. Contact us for more information.
