Using Text Annotation
Visitors to your site can now annotate pages by highlighting any text - including items, headers, footers, and pages - and typing into the corresponding dialog boxes. If the user does not have an account with hypothes.is, they will be prompted to create one.
Once annotations have been added, pages will display them via highlighted text which can be hovered over to reveal the notation.
For more information about how the annotations will appear, and how they function, please see the hypothes.is website.
