             Subject: manuscript transcription tools

    The Manuscript Transcription Database (MTD), a tool for managing
    distributed transcription projects, is available for download from The
    Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, at
    http://www.iath.virginia.edu/mss/ (a demo is also available at this
    URL). The interface uses php, and so assumes that you have access to a web
    server (for example, Apache) with the php module compiled in. It also
    expects that Mysql, a free database package, is already installed and
    running on the server. The download includes the php interface, database
    tables, directory structure, and detailed instructions on configuration and
    use. We welcome feedback, at mtd@www.iath.virginia.edu.

    Background of this project:

        The Manuscript Transcription Database (MTD) was originally built by
         Design in Charlottesville, VA, for Benjamin Ray's Salem Witch Trials
         (http://etext.virginia.edu/salem/witchcraft/home.html ) at the
    University of Virginia's
         Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH). The MTD was
         subsequently adapted and generalized for Kenneth Price and Ed Folsom's
    The Walt
         Whitman Archive ( http://www.iath.virginia.edu/whitman/), another IATH

         Both of these projects rely on skilled transcribers to read and
    transcribe handwritten
         manuscripts into an electronic format. The editors and transcribers
    involved in these
         projects are literally all over the world (from Finland to Nebraska),
    and they need to
         assign and view tasks, upload and download documents, coordinate
    workflow, and
         collect finished work. MTD was built in response to that need. It uses
    a central
         database and a set of editor and transcriber GUIs to organize and track
         and assignments. Editors can assign pages or documents to particular
    transcribers and
         see the current status of individual assignments, groups of documents,
    and the entire
         project. Transcribers can see their current assignments, upload
    assignments, download
         finished work, and check their work against other transcriptions.

         IATH has made MTD publicly available for download and installation.
