Getting Started

Getting started

  1. Give the workshop leader your email address, so they can share the shared OneDrive with you. Make sure your machine has downloaded the OneDrive application and is synced to the shared folder.
  2. Identify a document that you want to transcribe in the OneDrive. Open its image and find its corresponding XML file. Note that if you double-click on this file once it's saved locally, it will launch in a browser by default. That's not what we want, but rather to edit it oXygen.
  3. Access oXygen. The oXygen XML editor is available in the Virtual Lab in MyWings, which uses the Citrix Receiver client to let your local machine communicate with the software on the server. However, when you go in through MyWings > Virtual Lab, by default the "light" version of Citrix Receiver will launch. This "light" version runs in the browser, not on your machine itself, and it can sometimes be impossible to access your local file system. All computers in the DHI have Citrix already installed. However, if you want to use your own computer, follow the following steps:
      • Download the full version of Citrix Receiver from the Citrix website: https://www.citrix.com/products/receiver/
      • Double click on the downloaded file to run the installer, and say yes to any questions it asks you.
      • Once it is installed, click on the Citrix Receiver icon in the task bar of your computer (if you're using Windows) or launch Citrix Receiver from the application menu
      • When it prompts you to add an account, enter this server address: vlab.unf.edu
      • It will then prompt you for your network credentials (N# and password)
      • Once you're in, the first time you will need to click on the "+" sign to expand the list of applications, and then choose oXygen.Note: If you have done this on your own machine, you should be able to just start with Step 3 above the next time you want to open the application. You shouldn't have to do Step 4 again, though you may have to do Step 5. Step 6 should not have to be repeated.Also, if you are on your own machine, when you are done working, (after saving) just close oXygen itself, not your xml document. The next time you launch oXygen, your XML file should be open by default, and you won't have to browse for it on your machine.
  4. Open your file. To do so, you need to browse your local machine, following this path: Local Disk > C$ > Users > YOUR NAME (or the name of your user account on your computer) > OneDrive - University of North Florida > Eartha White Project Files
  5. Turn on Line Wrap in oXygen. This image shows how to do so (Options > Preferences > Editor (click on little triangle to expand) > Edit modes (click again to expand) > Text):
  6. Complete the TEI Header with your name, in the place indicated here:
<respStmt>
    <resp>Transcription, edition, and encoding</resp>
    <name>Your name here</name>
 </respStmt> 

Now, transcribe and encode your file in TEI-XML, according to the Transcription and Editorial Guidelines.
