Technical difficulties on the Transcription Desk

By Louise Seaward, on 18 April 2018

We’re having a few technical issues on the Transcription Desk at the moment and for that we apologise.

Our main issue relates to the display of TEI tags in the transcription text box.  The problem appears to be with nested tags.  When one tag appears inside another, the display in the ‘Preview’ tab and in the saved transcription goes a bit haywire and can include coding like the below:




Take a look at Folio 185 from Box 26 for an illustration of the problem.  All transcribers should rest assured that these errors relate merely to the display of the tags.  Transcripts are still being saved in the correct format and any tags added should still work.

We realise this problem makes it more difficult to check your work and we are working on getting it fixed as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patience in the meantime!

If you notice anything else that is not quite right with the Transcription Desk, please let us know and we will do our best to get it sorted out.
