Megillah Computer Checking
I have been writing Megillot Esther and Shir HaShirim for four years, but have not yet needed to have something computer checked (I've been careful to check everything I write during and after writing against the tikun, and I lein through every column once it is finished to double-check).
I am now selling a Megillat Esther, and the customer would like it computer-checked. All well and good, but I have no idea about computer checking, as I've not needed it before. I've vaguely heard things about it - Mishmeret Stam and Tor are names I've read on this forum - but I have no idea how to access these or what the cost would be.
I suppose that ultimately I have the following questions:
- Can I get computer checking done in the UK?
- If not, presumably Israel is the best option; do I need to take the Megillah there, or can I scan it here and send it to the checkers?
- What does computer checking cost, for the various options available?
Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
