The SIL Transcriber development team is pleased to announce the 2.11.2 and 2.11.3 release. It is a small improvement to the 2.11.0 release and the 2.11.1 release. The goal of this release was to improve the download of the new version, fix the list of roles for team members. There were a couple of other small bug fixes around rounding the number of seconds of the audio and logging out all the tabs on a browser at once.

Users have three work flow options: a web app designed for team work and collaboration. An occasionally connected experience where the desktop app will set things up on the web but then work offline if desired. Occasionally connected workflows allow those using a browser and those using the desktop app to collaborate but does require some coordination so they aren’t transcribing the same material. Projects can be marked as offline available and when work is done offline and the user subsequently logs in, the changes done offline are uploaded automatically to the online project so other team members can see them. Finally a completely off line experience which is primarily designed for transcribers working by themselves who do not desire to have the Internet used for saving any of their data. Below is a list of changes are available on the full-featured desktop app.
