IBM Canada through its former cooperative with the University of Toronto (1986-89) provided the occasion for joint development of TACT by members of the university's Computing Services, John Bradley and Lidio Presutti, with the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (Centre for Computing in the Humanities). In 1992 CCH assumed responsibility for finishing version 2.1 and for future development of the system. Five programs, Collgen, Preproc, Makedct, Tagtext, and Satdct, were developed with the help of a research grant to Ian Lancashire by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
