A type-in project is a Distributed Proofreaders (DP) project that does not have an OCR text when it is made available for proofing in P1.


Why are there type-in projects?

A Distributed Proofreaders (DP) project can be submitted as a type-in project by its Project Manager if the project's page images are:

  • of poor quality
  • printed in an obscure font, or
  • typeset in an unusual way,

such that the OCR text for the project is unusable.


How are type-in projects handled?

A type-in project requires special handling in the P1 round:

After completing the P1 round, a type-in project moves through the rest of the Distributed Proofreaders (DP) workflow as any other project.


Who handles type-in projects?

Any P1 proofer may volunteer to participate in a type-in project.

The Type-in Addicts, a team of Distributed Proofreaders (DP) volunteers, are especially interested in participating in type-in projects.
