This page gives a short overview of the features in the Manuscript Desk.

Creating New Manuscript Pages

Manuscript pages can contain any content, from any author, as long as the image format is either .jpg or .jpeg. Manuscript pages can also be added to a collection. A collection is simply a way for the user to specify that different manuscript pages belong together, because the pages are, for example, part of the same book.

New manuscript pages can be created in Special:NewManuscript.

Editing Manuscript Pages

Once you have uploaded your first manuscript page, you have the ability to edit its content. When you click on the 'Edit' button, you will see the TEI-editor, in which you can add TEI-tags to your page by clicking the corresponding tag buttons. If the tag you want is not available in one of the buttons, you can still use the tag by typing it manually.

Zoom Viewer

The zoom viewer requires flash player. If you do not have it availalbe, you can download it here. If the flash player does not work for you, you can use the javascript viewer instead.


In the top-right corner of the editor, you can see 'maximise/minimise' buttons that allow you to transcribe your manuscript page in full-screen mode.
