    18thConnect at the IDHMC has announced some new features for our TypeWright application, a crowdsourced correction tool for “bad OCR” from Eighteenth-Century Collections Online (ECCO). Users that correct a text in TypeWright will receive that text transcription (and XML) for the creation of a digital edition, data mining, or other digital work. Due to the increased use of TypeWright in collaborative classroom environments, we’ve made the TypeWright experience more collaborative. Walkthrough videos are available here: http://bit.ly/1CCZt8v
