Met with Catherine C about updates to the Francotoile site. She asked for: - add map-based browse interface - remove duplicate requests to authenticate user - do better job of remembering user configuration (i.e. player is quicktime) - ensure that transcript box always appears to right of video player - allow user to hide/show transcript box - support wildcards (? *) in search, and include instructions to user - include graphical frame around video box and graphical icons on tabs (search, bookmark, transcript, transcript of all, etc.) We'd already talked with Greg N about the map and he felt he could do that. The graphical border and icons would need a graphic artist (maybe 10 hours at most). The other modifications I could make. Also discussed with her that we'll likely port Francotoile from php-based front-end to cocoon-based front-end so that I become more familiar with the latter kind of approach. Drew up a project proposal to submit to the DH committee.
