... that is the question. Can you help me discern between lowercase Z and lowercase S in handwritten text? My problem today is the word "recognize," which looks in the original most of the time to be spelled with an S, but which has been almost uniformly transcribed as spelled with a Z.

Ethan warned me...be careful what you wish for!  I just found a 32-page document that appears to be entirely in French.  Are there any others who feel confident in transcribing French (as I do) who want to share transcribing and reviewing duties on it?
