T-PEN: A New Tool for the Digital Humanities

T‑PEN (http://t-pen.org/TPEN/) is a web-based tool for working with images of manuscripts. Users attach transcription data (new or uploaded) to the actual lines of the original manuscript in a simple, flexible interface.

Users can transcribe line by line from public manuscript images in a collaborative and customizable environment, export the project data in XML, pdf, HTML, or share it publicly with other users or web services.

Users can customize with the provided dictionaries, references, and tools or add their own.

Users enjoy tools and support for text encoding in any schema.

Thousands of manuscripts from over 50 repositories all over the world (and growing).

T-Pen is the transcription environment for Parker Library on the Web, the Carolingian Canon Law Project, and the Walters Art Museum.
