Demystifying Digitisation: A Hands-On Master Class in Text Digitisation will take place at the University of Antwerp from 29 to 30 September 2016. Registration is now open for those wanting to learn more about Transkribus and digitisation projects in general.
Organised by the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities-Belgium (DARIAH-BE) and Digital Humanities Flanders (DHuF), the programme will include two intensive workshops – the first on ABBYY OCR software, the second on the Transkribus platform for handwritten text recognition. There will also be related sessions on digitisation workflows, copyright issues and more.
Participation in the workshop is free of charge but registration is required.
