The University of Edinburgh has created a project to investigate crowdsourcing transcriptions and translations of its more miscellaneous collections such as those of David Laing, that can have content ranging from Samaritan to Scottish, the ancient worlds to revolutionary France, and so can be notoriously difficult to with. The project is not only developing a website to help us untangle the variety in the Edinburgh collections, but we're also creating an open source package, Polyanno, to help others do the same! We've been working on an accessible, responsive, modular web design to transcribe and translate images, with support for input across a huge array of possible languages and formats. This demo will give a quick overview of the project and our use of IIIF APIs through LUNA and LeafletJS, and annotations compliant with the Open Annotation Model framework.
