    Isut - A tool for collaborative annotation and computational analysis of Hieratic texts

    Isut is a tool, created by Mark-Jan Nederhof, Julius Tabin, and Christian Casey with the support of the University of Liège, which collects fully annotated Hieratic facsimiles of some well-known Egyptian texts. Its main purpose is to compare different shapes of Hieratic signs, distinguishing periods, provenances, and genres, which can be useful for dating and for identifying scribes.
    The Guesser is a feature that allows the user to draw a Hieratic sign, and the tool will return the normalized hieroglyphs and Gardiner names of the shapes in the database that are most similar to it.
