Online palaeography exercises - and a toolkit to create yours

To help students and amateur palaeographers learning how to read the
mediaeval handwriting in the Savoyard account rolls, the project decided to
propose some online palaeography interactive exercises. You can
access them from the main site, or directly at this URL: (4 exercises available now, more
to come soon)

For the creation of these exercises, I wanted a workflow that would
involve as few technical skills as possible (and possibly a total
independence from web designers for the palaeographers creating
exercises), while conforming to the main technical standards. So, I
created a "palaeography exercise" kit (an XSL + CSS + javascript kit)
to customize the excellent "Image Markup Tool", a free software.
This kit is now available online

(, on the
Image Markup Tool website, under "Paleography", with some
instructions on how to install and use. Like IMT, this kit is free,
and you can use it and adapt it to your needs.

Best regards,
