GiDoc: Screenshot 2

The Transcription entry in the GIDOC menu opens the GIDOC interactive transcription dialog (see the next figure). It consists of two main sections: the image section, in the middle part, and the transcription section, in the bottom part. An odd number of text line images are displayed in the image section together with their transcriptions, if available, in separate editable text boxes within the transcription section. The current line to be transcribed or simply supervised is selected by placing the edit cursor in the appropriate editable box. Its corresponding baseline is emphasised (in blue colour) and, whenever possible, GIDOC shifts line images and their transcriptions so as to display the current line in the central part of both the image and transcription sections
