Hi Cinda, could you please share a link to an example page? If you've navigated away from it, but did any transcription or review on it, you can find the link to the page in your profile page. You reach this by clicking on "Account" in the top right of the homepage, and then looking through the pages in your profile which are segmented by Campaign and activity type.

An example page with multiple uses of ditto marks is:
It has ditto marks for the "following bills be approved," "Judgements - Fines imposed," "complaints dismissed," and more "bills."
(I'm not sure why a "city record of 1880" is part of the Civil War left-handed penmanship section, but when I clicked the link to give me another page, that's what it gave me. Since it is already typed, I presumed it was one of the ones the OCR couldn't read.)
This is a good question. We ask that you type what you see, in this case rendering the ditto marks rather than full text the marks refer to. We think this will make for the most consistent output of data from the project. We will then work with our accessibility specialists here at the Library to understand if this will meet the needs of those using screen readers, and iterate on the process if not.
In the meantime though, if you want to tag this page and others like it with "ditto marks" to help us identify pages with this sort of activity, that may be helpful in the future.
Thanks, Victoria. I'll use the ditto marks and tag the items with "ditto marks."
I appreciate your prompt feedback.
