Use this option in the workspace when you have manuscript images that require OCR transcription.
1. Log into the workspace
2. Create a new item by clicking on the button on the left hand side
3. Name that item following the required conventions, for example Bates35

Notice the green ticks, as the workspace accepts each manuscript file. Each of these resources is now ready for automated Optical Character Recognition (OCR). Click done to start the processing.
Depending on how many files you are uploading and who else in working in the workspace, OCR may take a few minutes. If in doubt, refresh your browser. When ready, you can view the manuscript image alongside the transcription result (see below).
At this point, you can zoom into the manuscript images and edit the transcription by clicking inside the black box (right side).
Simple marked up of the transcription is possible by highlighting the appropriate text and clicking the mark up buttons on the right hand side.
