Text Annotation

This plugin is available for accounts with Gold and Platinum plans.

The Text Annotation plugin allows users to annotate HTML text on Omeka sites using hypothes.is.


From the plugin’s configuration panel, either of the services can be chosen. Click the one you would like to use and press Save Changes.

Using Text Annotation

Visitors to your site can now annotate pages by highlighting text and typing into the corresponding dialog boxes. If users do not have an account with hypothes.is, they will be prompted to create one.

Once annotations have been added, pages will display them via highlighted text which can be hovered over to reveal the notation.

For more information about how the annotations will appear, and how they function, please see the documentation for hypothesis.
