Abstract

This project, a continuation of the ongoing Emergent Transcriptions Initiative, redesigned and implemented the Transcription Assistant software system. The system provides tools for archivists and transcribers in order to preserve ancient documents in a digital, searchable format. Specifically, it converted the system to a more appropriate web-based architecture. The software is composed of a web browser based user interface, a series of server-side services, and a set of databases for storing all the related transcription and user information. The project also established a web "home base" for the past, present, and ongoing project.
