    Preserve original spelling, punctuation, grammar, word order, etc.

      From the How to Transcribe page:  "Preserve original spelling, punctuation, grammar, word order, and any page numbers or catalog letters or numbers. ... If a misspelling will impact the searchability of the document, use a tag to add the correct spelling."

       

      Just a reminder about this because I had to fix a transcription that started with:  "(N.B. There are multiple misspellings which I've corrected for ease of reading.)"  Also, transcribers shouldn't add their own notes in the transcription.  That's another thing you can use tags for.
