... before getting read to work on "By the People" transcriptions. I noticed this morning some markups of underlined text and suchlike that aren't used in these transcription projects.
Per the How to Transcribe page:
"The Library website cannot search for bold, italic, underlined or superscript text, so even when you see these features please transcribe the words without any styling."
Because I work mostly on another site (shoutout to the Smithsonian!), I find it personally helpful to review the transcription instructions here before starting to work.
A good note, Beth. Thank you! Over the next few weeks the community managers will be reviewing the site's instructions for clarity and we'll taking the questions and evidence of confusion we've seen in History Hub posts like this one into that process.
