The program proposed is an open-source web-based system that will allow for the sharing of transcriptions of ancient documents. The system we are proposing consists of three main applications:
1. The Archive Assistant (AA) that runs on a manuscript server and assists archive personnel in making manuscript images available to end users, with proper manuscript metadata;
2. The Transcription Assistant (TA) that runs on stand-alone or Internet-connected end-user machines and facilitates the job of the researchers by making transcriptions easier to complete, track and manage as projects;
3. The Contribution Accountant (CA) that runs on a server to keep track of the credits accumulated by each user.
All three applications are open-source and downloadable for free.
