About the programme
This innovative program makes it easy and affordable for members of the TEI to create and encode the full text of valuable academic and research collections or even individual works and documents in preparation for on-line or other forms of digital publication. By pooling digitization projects from the TEI community together and taking advantage of the economies of scale presented by their use of a common encoding system, AccessTEI is able to offer TEI members the cost, quality benefits, and support usually reserved for larger individual projects.
A wide range of document types, scripts, and character sets
Online project submission and management
The project is designed around Apex CoVantage's user-friendly ProWeb Portal. This website helps members determine where a collection fits within the digitization matrix. Members can then make the optimum cost/benefit decision regarding the encoding of their content, without requiring expert knowledge of TEI metadata. Once the project is underway, the ProWeb system provides tracking and reporting features—including automated project management and Quality Assurance features—that help keep project costs low by eliminating volumes of email and the possibility of spreadsheet errors.
