Advancing Access to Transcribed Text in Citizen Humanities

Extending Zooniverse.org’s online platform to allow individual crowdsourcing project teams to review, compare, and edit transcriptions, and to work directly with raw text data generated from community transcription projects.

Advancing Access to Transcribed Text in Citizen Humanities will build off of existing methods used by Zooniverse.org for online crowdsourced transcription of handwritten documents. The Zooniverse team has noted that humanities researchers frequently require additional support when working with the results of text-transcription crowdsourcing projects, particularly for review and analysis of data. In this proposal, we request a Level III Digital Humanities Advancement Grant, which will facilitate the creation of an online viewer and editor which will allow researchers to work with the raw and aggregated text data from Zooniverse transcription projects (including the ability to review and edit transcriptions) before uploading them into their Content Management Systems to be presented to the public.
