Upgraded Transcription Desk now available!

By Tim Causer, on 15 July 2013

We are delighted to say that the Transcription Desk is now available again for volunteers to access and transcribe material, and now includes several new and improved features.

The key changes are:

1. maximise and minimise buttons, to enlarge the transcription are and allow users to see more of the manuscript image than before.

2. a tabbed transcription interface, allowing users to switch instantly between their transcript, a preview of the rendered version, and highlighted changes of any edits they have made to the transcript. The transcription box also now has better spacing between the transcribed text, making it easier to read and navigate.

3. the image viewer now allows for rotation of the manuscript image.

We look forward to talking in more detail about the new interface tomorrow, and in hearing what you think about it! In the meantime, happy transcribing, and do drop us an email if you have any further questions.
