Need to make a transcription?

Regular reader Ellen Morris drew my attention to a posting on the blog FAMHIST: Family History Thoughts and Links. It describes a helpful utility for making transcriptions, and as it happens it's one I used just last month and had meant to blog about -- why are there so many other interesting things happening?

Transcript is free software for the PC. The operation is simple. It splits the screen horizontally so you display an image for transcription in the upper panel and type the transcription in the lower. I recommend trying it.

The operation is well described in detail at http://famhist2.blogspot.com/2011/01/transcript-for-genealogy-transcriptions.html.
