Use the toolbar to format your Transcription text or to add extra details to it.

You can format your text using the various styles and alignment tools:
Use bold for headings, and italics, underline and strikethrough if they appear in the item text. You can edit the structure of the text using the alignment options  , and, if the item text is arranged in a table (e.g. a registry or list), you can insert a table to mimic this structure.

You can also place extra information and markers into your transcription:
The missing icon is a placeholder for gaps in your transcription text. Use it to mark words or sections of the text you did not or cannot transcribe, so that the next volunteer can pick up on it.

If you are unsure whether a word or section in the transcription is correct, highlight it with the unclear tool.

Highlight text using the comment tool to add a remark or to identify wherever an image or any other notable feature appears in the document.

You can also insert a special character if it appears in the item text.

Use the Clear Formatting button to remove any formatting changes.
