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
We are happy to report that new ‘How to’ guides are now available to help those who want to work with Transkribus.
If you visit the Transkribus wiki, you will find the following ‘How to’ papers:
- How to Transcribe Documents with Transkribus – Simple Mode
- How to Transcribe Documents with Transkribus – Advanced Mode
- How to Prepare Test Projects with Transkribus – for Archives and Libraries
We hope you will find these documents useful and we welcome any feedback.
The coverage explains the aims of the project and also gives a summary of the ‘Technology meets Scholarship’ conference in January 2016, where the READ project held its kick-off meeting.
Our appearance in Insights magazine should help to spread the word about READ! We look forward to developing our relationship with the archival community as our project continues.
