Walking through the log pages by manually editing the address is easy.
For example:



It can also be done using Craig's AutoHotKey program (OW_navigate.ahk). Below is a version customized for Bear (1914).

Open the starting page in your default browser, press Alt+t to capture the page URL, and then Alt+right-arrow or Alt+left-arrow to advance or back up.

Code: [Select]

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

;...
; Craig's OW_navigate.ahk with Randi's modifications for Bear
;
; For this script to work, a jpg image of an OW log page must be open in your default browser (not in the Interface!).
; First, double click OW_navigate.ahk in your file manager (where you have previously copied it)
; Then, select the log page image and press Alt + t in order to capture the current URL
;
; Then use the following arrow keys to navigate:
; Alt + left-arrow brings up previous page
; Alt + right-arrow brings up next page
;
;
;Note: You must release the Alt key between each action; if you hold it down and press an arrow it will only work once.
; You only need to press Alt t when you begin or if you load a new log page; not when you are navigating with this script
;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

!t:: ; Alt+t
 
;get the URL of active tab
Send, {F6} ; highlights URL
sleep 100 ; needs a short delay between sends
Send, ^c ; copy to clipboard
sleep 100
URL = %clipboard%
Msgbox,,, %URL%, .5


a:= instr(URL,".jpg") ; find ".jpg" in the title
if a>0 ;".jpg" was found
 Seq:=SubStr(URL,a-4,4) ; extract the page sequence number
else ;.jpg was not found in the title
 MsgBox, A jpg image of an OW log page  must be open and selected before running this script
 
return

;........... HOTKEYS...................................

!left:: ;go to previous page
 nseq :=seq - 1
 if nseq between 1 and 9
    nseq:= 000 . nseq
 if nseq between 10 and 99
    nseq:= 00 . nseq
 if nseq between 100 and 999
    nseq:= 0 . nseq
 
 StringReplace, URL2, URL, _%seq%, _%nseq%

 Msgbox,,, Previous page   %nseq%, .5 ; This statement must be here or the Ctrl F4 won't work
 Send, ^{F4} ; this closes the active window in Firefox
 run, %URL2%

 seq:= nseq
 URL:= URL2
 return



!right:: ;go to next page
 nseq := seq + 1
 if nseq between 1 and 9
    nseq:= 000 . nseq
 if nseq between 10 and 99
    nseq:= 00 . nseq
 if nseq between 100 and 999
    nseq:= 0 . nseq

 StringReplace, URL2, URL, _%seq%, _%nseq%
 Msgbox,,, next page   %URL2%, 1 ; This statement must be here or the Ctrl F4 won't work
 Send, ^{F4} ; this closes the active window in Firefox
 run, %URL2%

 seq:= nseq
 URL:= URL2
return

Note: On my computer only the left Alt key works for this.

I'll have a look at this log book.

I was wondering if it would be useful to make a note of roughly where the ship goes during the log, it might help prioritise any future weather transcribing? I'll try it here and see if it's helpful.

Jan 1st to May 3rd - California
May 4th - En route North
May 24th - Unalaska
June 1st - off Nome

I started using the log book link https://catalog.archives.gov/id/23695631 rather than the page URL as it's less fiddly than changing the URL. The image is good enough to work out if they are still at Mare Island without zooming in. I was hoping once I got to a page I wanted to be able to read properly I would swap back to using the page URL. However I can't work out an easy way to do this. On the OW interface you could just right click and 'copy image location'. I'll be able to find the page I want with a bit of guess work but if there's an easier way that anyone knows that would be good!

You can right click on the download icon (down arrow pointing to a tray), paste that result in your browser, and delete the "?download=true" bit from the end.

Sounds like a good idea.

Thanks jil!
If you want to transcribe the mentions of ice here, that is great.
However just noting that ice is mentioned on a page is sufficient for now.

OK Randi, I've just transcribed the next page but will resort to just noting the page as I suspect It might get a bit dull (and slow) after a while!

June 3rd 1914 (despite the top of the page having been cut off  >:( ) - a bit further off Nome

Mid - 4am
in ice floes, making good general course of ESE

8:00am NW 1/4 N - 9 miles Cape Nome

8:48am moored ship to large ice floe in open water

Noon Cape Nome NW 3/8 N - 9 miles

4.00pm unmoored from ice floe and stood to Northward and eastward.
6.30pm moored to ground ice near Port Safety - 10 fms water at vessel. No leads visible to the Eastward towards St. Michael.
