SEANCE: Sentiment Analysis and Cognition Engine

The Sentiment Analysis and Cognition Engine (SEANCE) is an easy to use tool that includes 254 core indices and 20 component indices based on recent advances in sentiment analysis. In addition to the core indices, SEANCE allows for a number of customized indices including filtering for particular parts of speech and controlling for instances of negation. SEANCE takes plain text files as input (it will process all plain text files in a particular folder) and produces a comma separated values (.csv) spreadsheet that is easily read by any spreadsheet.
