a student and I are looking for a tool which could:
a) record a link from a line of a MS image (as a set of coordinates) to a
line of transcription
b) display as a web page an image map of MS page and its transcription
side by side
c) highlight, in parallel, a line in the image and its transcription (e.
g. on hover over image or transcription)
d) search transcriptions for a string and display all lines where the
string appears (with links to respective images)
In spite of the DH popularity explosion, we are having a hard time finding
a tool that does not only a) and b), but also c) and d).
We've looked at Image Markup Tool, TILT, Scripto, From the page,
Zooniverse / Scribe, monasterium.net, Transcribe Bentham, T-PEN -- more or
less everything mentioned in a discussion here:
Nothing seems to fit our needs, however. (I've also found TextGrid, but at
the moment it is hard for me to say whether it does what we need.)
It appears that recently a lot of efforts were directed at crowdsourcing
transcriptions, but not that much at displaying them.
Any help is appreciated.
