Transcribe allows anyone to transcribe documents that are found in Acumen. Maybe you need to transcribe the letter for your research and want others to benefit from your work as well. Or maybe you’re a history buff who really enjoys reading old letters and wouldn’t mind typing out what you read to help others who aren’t as good at reading old-timey handwriting. Maybe you want to be a part of a collaborative online project. Maybe you’re just bored. Any of those things are great reasons to contribute to this project!
