Researchers will also have the schedule possibility to react to annotations by annotating the annotation (ad infinitum). This tool will empower researchers to create annotations to every part of a scan or the transcription text of a transcription object, simply by pointing to and highlighting the image part or text range they desire to annotate. Current work in the project is schedule focused on the development of a flexible annotation tool. Current additions under development are the inclusion of an open source OCR engine to facilitate text recognition on demand for uploaded scans.
The addition of modules, tools, or components to e-Laborate is easily facilitated by its plain plugin architecture and open source nature. In the future tools to further process or statistically analyse schedule those results may be added. A fuzzy matching algorithm amends search input as well as the indexed material for spelling variants. Any transcription object is automatically indexed so an authorised user or editor can search through the text base and present the search results in a schedule comprehensive way.
