READ revolutionizes access to handwritten documents
From the Middle Ages to today, from old Greek to modern English, from running text to tables or forms
The READ project now has a new partner which will investigate how Transkribus can be used in digital scholarly editing.
The Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) is the latest institution to join the READ network as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) partner. Based in Germany, the IDE is a network of scholars who research the ways in which digital methods can be applied to historical documents. The IDE has a rich knowledge of digital editions and produces the RIDE journal to review such resources.
The IDE will be testing out the Transkribus platform and providing feedback on how it can support the creation of digital editions using basic TEI standards.
Are you new to Transkribus and wondering how it all works? We have prepared a short guide that should help!
How to use Transkribus – in 10 steps (or less) takes you through the basic stages of working with the platform.
Once you’ve conquered the 10 steps, you can find more detailed information on the Transkribus wiki page.
