Description
The origins of this app lie in online exercises in palaeography developed
for postgraduate students in the Institute for Medieval Studies at the
University of Leeds in West Yorkshire, U.K. The aim is to provide practice
in the transcription of a wide range of medieval hands, from the twelfth to
the late fifteenth century. Please note that it is not a tutorial on the
development of handwriting in medieval western Europe.

Users can examine 26 selected manuscripts, zoom in on individual words,
attempt transcription and receive immediate feedback. They can optionally
compare their transcription with a full transcript. The user's transcripts
can be saved and reopened. The saved transcripts are accessible via File
Manager apps.
