- a MS Word version, with fonts embedded, so that you can (I hope) copy and
paste data to your write-up

Bruce Hayes's OTSoft
If you give it candidates, constraints, and constraint violations,
it gives you a constraint ranking (if there is one) and makes nice tableaux
Also runs Gradual Learning Algorithm and MaxEnt OT
Staubs et al.'s OT-Help
Accepts OTSoft-format input files.
Will rank your constraints in standard OT,
but will also give Harmonic Grammar constraint weights--and implements
serial versions of both.
Floris van Vugt's Marpa-OT
Lets you make an OT tableau in a spreadsheet program and then convert it
into code you can paste into a LaTeX document.
