The origins of this app lie in online exercises in palaeography developed for postgraduate students in the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds in West Yorkshire, U.K. The aim is to provide practice in the transcription of a wide range of medieval hands, from the twelfth to the late fifteenth century. Please note that it is not a tutorial on the development of handwriting in medieval western Europe.

Users can examine 26 selected manuscripts, zoom in on individual words, attempt transcription and receive immediate feedback. They can optionally compare their transcription with a full transcript. The user's transcripts can be saved and reopened. The saved transcripts are accessible via File Manager apps.

Not working properly I would really like to use this app. However, the images are so magnified and blurred that I cannot read anything, and trying to zoom out does not work. Sometimes when I double tap a specific word will hover over the page, and it is clearly readable, but nothing is reliable. There is no feedback option in the app for me to contact the developer for help either.

Excellent if you really want to transcript medieval documents I love this app, I'm a huge medieval nerd and to actually read and transcript pieces from the middle ages on the go is perfect! I just wish you can read the documents in full, since most is blurred out by gray. Perhaps if we pay, you'd unlock it? Cause surely I'd be willing to dish out some cash to be able to read it in whole! Thanks for the awesome app!
