Transcription Instructions and Tips

Transcription Instructions

To begin the transcription process, click on the letter of your choice. You will be taken to a page that allows you to view the individual pages of that letter. Access the first page by clicking on the image furthest to the left. The letter will appear in your viewer at which point you are ready to start transcribing in the box located below the image. To adjust your view of the letter, use your cursor and/or the icons located in the upper left-hand corner of the image box. When you are finished typing, save your work by clicking on the red "save edits" tab located beneath the transcription box. Once you have saved one page, move on to the next page by clicking the "next" tab located below the "save edits" button.  Note that pages marked as "needs review" may not be complete, and you are welcome to check the work done so far or pick up where the previous transcriber stopped.
