Correct mistranscribed or misspelled names in MyHeritage SuperSearch™

If you've done any transcription you understand why errors occur. Sometimes words are poorly written, the copy you have to work with is of poor quality, perhaps out of focus or lacking contrast. But if you know what you're looking for, given the context, the "right" transcription jumps out at you.
Then you have to decide if you're going to share your "correction", or perhaps for properly "interpretation".
Most organizations these days allow you to add your transcription to the record so others searching will have the benefit of your knowledge. Now MyHeritage has added that capability for their SuperSearch™ results.
