Subject: +PAGE's for double page scans
Date: Fri, 9 Jul 2004 14:47:13 +0100
I thought I would run this past you before I arrange for either "Hints and
Help Guide" or "Transcriber's Knowledge Base" to be changed, comments or
suggested improvements to the wording is appreciated?
The query revolves around double page scans (i.e. two Index pages to a
scan). I've just noticed that some volunteers are not inserting a +PAGE to
separate the two pages within the transcription.
If the decision is taken to go down "Transcriber's Knowledge Base" route,
I'm proposng the following addional Q & A.
Q. What is the process for transcribing a double page scan (i.e. two index
pages to a scan)
A. You transcribe the scan as one file and name the file exactly as if was
a one page scan.
For example, the double page scan 1874b4-520 would have a file name
You also need to add three +PAGEs, one at the start of the entries, one at
the end of the entries and a further one in the middle of the entries to
denote the end of the first index page and the start of the second.
For example, the file for the double page scan 1874b4-520 would contain the
other entries on first page down to
WALGROVE,John William,"Bradford, Y",9b,258
other entries on second page down to
Sorry for the delay.
