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
National Archives Finland will be part of an exciting event, taking place in Oslo in association with the National Library of Finland on 13-14 September 2016. At the Nordic Network seminar on “Philology in the future” the READ project will be presented, along with other research on data and text analysis. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn the basics of Transkribus in a dedicated workshop. For more information, check the website.
The Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities-Belgium (DARIAH-BE) and Digital Humanities Flanders (DHuF) are organising a two-day event for digital humanities researchers at the University of Antwerp. Demystifying Digitisation: A Hands-On Master Class in Text Digitisation will take place on 29 – 30 September 2016.
The core of the programme consists of two workshops – the first dealing with ABBYY OCR software and the second explaining the HTR technology available in our Transkribus platform. There will also be associated lectures exploring the most important considerations for mass and ad-hoc digitisation projects.
Each workshop is limited to 20 participants. Official registration will be open soon but preliminary enquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
