ConsentCanvas ABOUT ConsentCanvas uses unsupervised natural language processing (NLP) techniques to make end-user license agreements (EULAs) more readable. A plaintext EULA is the input, and the output is an HTML5 document. REQUIREMENTS ConsentCanvas requires: Python 2.6.5+ NLTK 2.0b9 a modified version of the markup library (originally from http://markup.sourceforge.net) (this is included in markup.py) USE To use ConsentCanvas, type: python ConsentCanvas.py <eula> where <eula> is a plaintext end user license agreement. The HTML5 document will be printed to standard output, so you may want to use the following command on a Unix system: python ConsentCanvas.py <eula> > output.html Then, copy textured-agreement-clean-1.css to the same folder as your output file (output.html in this case), and open your output file with your favourite browser. NOTES ON COMPLETENESS ConsentCanvas is a work-in-progress. Although this is a working implementation, many improvements are necessary before it can reliably improve readability. As well, no official verification of said improvements have yet been conducted. LICENSE Copyright (C) 2011 Oliver Schneider and Alex Garnett.
