Technical Requirements

Annotation Studio has been designed and built using features of Javascript, CSS and HTML that are available only in recent versions of common web browsers. The following are all free and run on all major computer operating systems:

We recommend Chrome. There are many other browsers on which Annotation Studio does not work.

Please be sure that javascript is enabled in your browser, and that if you have virus scanning software, it is not blocking javascript.

We are experimenting with support for iOS and Android smartphone and tablet browsers, but support for those platforms is not yet mature.

This is the internal MIT instance of Annotation Studio. Non-MIT affiliates should go here instead.
