    Who can participate in Crowd?

      Who is eligible to participate in Crowd?  Is this open to students (high school or middle school)?

          Everyone is very welcome! If you have an internet connection and some time to spare, you can take part. Through this transcription effort we hope to make manuscript images accessible to people who use screen readers. Volunteers who have enough vision to read the original manuscripts and create transcriptions from them will ultimately help those who are less sighted access these materials. Transcribers will also help people performing word searches within the loc.gov catalog and those who are not able to understand the original handwritten texts.
