Here is another announcement made today at RootsTech. This one concerns the software used for FamilySearch indexing:
Index From Your Internet Browswer, Including on Your Tablet Computer
The way we index historical documents is changing. FamilySearch indexing is currently developing an all-new program for volunteers to help make records searchable. The new browser-based indexing program will be introduced later this year and will be compatible with any tablet, desktop, or laptop computer that can access the Internet. The program will also be integrated with FamilySearch.org so the experience will be familiar to FamilySearch patrons.
What else is changing? New users will have an easier time getting started, and all users will find the help resources to be more accessible and complete. The program will make it simpler to find and learn about projects, with the ability to launch into a batch with a single click. And a new column-based entry option will be introduced, making it easier to index census and other tabular records.
Indexers will also be able to join multiple groups and enjoy a personalized My Indexing page, which will provide individual feedback, progress updates, and messages.
