The origins of this app lie in online exercises in palaeography developed for postgraduate students at the University of Leeds in West Yorkshire, U.K. The aim is to provide practice in the transcription of sixteenth and seventeenth century hands. Many of the manuscripts, especially after 1600, use a varying mixture of secretary and italic letter forms.
Users can examine 30 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 Sharing in iTunes.

Great app but no longer works under iOS11
This has abeen an invaluable app for me and for teaching Ren. Paleography, but it no longer will install under iOS11. You get an error that says "The developer of this app needs to update it to work with iOS 11." I hope that it is an easy fix!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
