|tnw||Title, Name, or Work|
|i||Change of Voice|
|fterm||Foreign or Technical Term|
Note: Additional styles in ScML may render as italic, bold, small-caps, underline, or other text treatments. Examples include dispk for dialogue speaker, gt for glossary term, lang for foreign languages, and hemb for embedded heads. The complete list of ScML styles is found here.

BrickFTP for File Transfers
To make file transfers easier for all, Scribe has adopted BrickFTP (https://brickftp.com/) for file transfers. Files can be accessed through a web interface or an FTP program such as FileZilla or Cyberduck. There is one account per organization. Every organization's login name consists of the Scribe client code with "-scribe" appended. For an organization with a client code of ABC, that would be "ABC-scribe." If you need an account created, simply contact us, and we can provide this to you.
BrickFTP offers a number of beneficial features, including a robust web interface and fine-grained file system controls. As of Monday evening on May 2, our current FTP will be deprecated and you can begin using BrickFTP for exchanging files with us.
