The Nyingarn Project uses DigiVol and FromthePage to transcribe manuscripts. See the guides below to use and join our online team of transcribers. Manuscripts are made available with permission from the relevant language group so that the text can be used by them and by others for appropriate purposes. Please do not distribute or use any of the material in these manuscripts except to transcribe it. The work will be distributed using a Creative Commons non-commercial, attribution licence.

DigiVol is a crowdsourcing platform that was developed by the Australian Museum in collaboration with the Atlas of Living Australia.
