Introduction to basics of Voyant.

Getting started with corpus selection in default skins

The very basic starting point of learning how to use Voyant should start by looking at these basic guidelines, which include creating a corpus (a collection of text), modifying the corpus, embedding Voyant into your website and export the text into the tool, and setting the default skins that include Cirrus (i.e., word cloud for keywords), Reader, Trends (i.e., keywords trending), Summary, and Context.
