Cobre is a robust image comparison environment, presenting versions of texts in filmstrip view along side each other and collating these images of different texts while allowing users to adjust the collation.

Cobre was originally created for Primeros Libros, but has been modified for the Early Modern OCR Project (eMOP) to add the following features:

  • Add the possibility for transcription of pages on the Annotations window;
  • Make editable specific items of the metadata format on the Book Overview page, adding Dublin Core font categories;
  • Make it easier for people to manually transcribe pages for particular (“local”) editions and then share those transcriptions with other editions.
