Overview

An example of a crowdsourced transcription project is Unlocking the Chartist Trials, part of the wider National Libraries Wales Cynefin/Place Names Wales project which transcribed tithe maps and their apportionment documents. It used adapted open-source Scripto software to transcribe Victorian documents which had already been digitised to archival standards.

The resulting images and transcriptions were shared on the People’s Collection Wales aggregator site.
