Feedback to improve transcribing
Is there any way feedback could be given to a transcriber who has not followed the project instructions? When reviewing I am finding some batches have several types of errors in the same batch. I have tried using labs (not always successfully) but feel that perhaps someone from Familysearch should be providing advice to the original transcriber when errors are pointed out by a reviewer.

Yes, there is. If you want to help the Indexer to improve and/ or help FS get to the bottom of the problem, then you can Return the batch for Reindexing with Reasons. Even if you are willing to do the work of making all those corrections, it may be the better course, but it is your call.
To activate this “experimental” Labs option, select Help>Labs. You will see a description of this Reasons to Reindex Batch option, examples of using it, and can click to activate it. You then need to refresh your browser (curly arrow or F5) and return to your batch. Now if you click on Batch>Reindex Batch you will see the following form instead of the usual brief one. This will let you express your concerns about this batch, and allow FS to give the Indexer the necessary help or take appropriate other action. It includes some standard reasons plus a free-form “Other” option. Tip -sometimes it doesn't stay activated, and you may need to repeat the activation step.0
