Mocavo Adds a "Summary" List to Their Results Page, and Indexed Handwritten Records

Cliff Shaw of Mocavo has published a blog post - New Features From Mocavo - on the Mocavo Genealogy Blog today.  

In his post, Cliff highlights two advances on the Mocavo site for Mocavo Gold members:

1)  New Summary Search View

"With millions of potential matches added to our search engine every day, we want to give you multiple ways to quickly scan through your results and break through your brick walls. Previously, a search results page would show you an excerpt of the content and, if available, an image preview with the matching word highlighted in yellow. Today, I’m excited to announce Summary Search View; a new feature that we’re releasing in beta (and available exclusively to our Mocavo Gold members) that offers an entirely new way to view your search results. Summary Search View allows you to group your results by category and database title, making it a breeze to target the databases that spark your interest, and quickly avoid those that are irrelevant to your research."

2.  First Transcribed Database Live and Searchable
"We continue to make strides with our handwriting technology and we’re putting the finishing touches on our transcription tool! Comprising more than 11,000 handwritten words, the first transcribed database is live and searchable!
With this new technology, our search engine reveals results that include both typewritten and handwritten text. Now we have the potential to bring even more offline content online for everyone to enjoy for free, forever. Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 4.03.36 PM
