In collaboration with the Center for Applied Technologies in Education at the University at Buffalo , some of these manuscripts are equipped with an interactive tool enabling the user to view the document's transcription. Look for the triangle near the top left of the manuscript and drag it toward the bottom right to reveal the transcription. This provides a 21st Century glimpse of ways students and life-long learners can interact with handwritten documents and manuscripts. Our thanks to the Center for Applied Technologies in Education at the University at Buffalo for developing this innovative tool.
