Civil War Letters Week 5 Update

This week we finalized our group contract by making it more specific. The aspect that we were having a little trouble deciding on was what to do for accessibility options. The main things we will focus on will be color contrast and alternative text for documents and pictures.

We are making good progress on scanning the letters. We have run into a few obstacles, such as missing letters or letters that were in a weird order, but we have been able to work through those things with the help of Angie and Luisa from the NPS.

As far as accessibility issues go, my group has been looking at Soundcite JS, which is used to put audio alongside written text. It might be something cool your group could look into, maybe with some dramatic readings of your letters.
