I've searched for this and am unsure which product does what I want.

I want to be able to read transcriptions into Hebrew for the various Hebrew DSS Sectarian documents. 

I.e. transcribed like את הזה אקרא במחשבתי not like ʾt hzh ʾqrʾ bmḥšbty

I was looking at The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition: vol. I: 1Q1–4Q273–vol. II: 4Q274–11Q31 but there's no preview or "look inside" button, or screen shots of the text available so I can't tell if the transcriptions are with Hebrew letters or not. I'll be getting the Biblical DSS database soon, so it'd be fantastic if there is an add-on for the sectarian manuscripts to that, or some sort of similar product.

I tried filtering on "Hebrew language" in my search but kept getting texts in English.  

Thanks in advance,

Both DSS-SE and Abegg have hebrew square-writing, and both have similar indicated text restoration, largely reflecting how hebrew letters would fit.

DSS-SE is the more common, and tends to link easier. As you noticed, you can link the english and hebrew and scroll as needed.

Abegg is also morphed, along with glosses (popup). Personally, I like Abegg better (search support), as well as presentation. But DSS-SE has better descriptive info, etc  Logos offers Abegg's english separately, but is handy for comparison of tricky flows.

Given you'll use Qumran a lot, you'd be smart to just buy both, work a couple of weeks, then return as needed.
