+ A user’s perspective on Transkribus!

What is it like to work with Transkribus as a user?  Melina Jander from the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Göttingen has provided some insights in a new User Report.

Melina has been using Transkribus to create training data for a Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) model that can provide automatic transcripts of the correspondence of the Brothers Grimm.  This work was undertaken as part of a pilot project called Tracing Authorship in Noise (TrAIN), which is analysing how page noise affects the accuracy of HTR and OCR.  This is part of the wider eTRAP project on the reuse of electronic  texts.  We are happy to have this feedback and we look forward to seeing the results the results of the HTR!
