The Versioning Machine

Description: The Versioning Machine is a software tool designed by a team of programmers, designers, and literary scholars for displaying and comparing multiple versions of texts. The display environment provides for features traditionally found in codex-based critical editions, such as annotation and introductory material, while taking advantage of opportunities of electronic publishing, such as providing a frame to compare diplomatic versions of witnesses side by side, allowing for manipulatable images of the witness to be viewed alongside the diplomatic edition, and providing users with an enhanced typology of notes.

Other Related Resources: The Versioning Machine utilises TEI Parallel Segmentation encoding.
