An update on Scripto

The Scripto Alpha is still available for interested parties to download and experiment with, even as we move forward with development.

New features in Scripto for Omeka S so far include a dashboard for transcribers so that they can keep track of documents they’ve transcribed, as well as the ability to watch additional documents which interest them. Scripto for S will also support translation and description of media resources in addition to transcription.

Admin view:

Public view:

We expect to release a stable beta of Scripto for Omeka S in the spring of 2019. The beta, like the alpha, will benefit from feedback. If you would be interested in installing the beta and providing feedback, please let us know and we will contact you when the beta is released.

Scripto for Omeka S is made possible thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities.
