Using Transkribus for your Research

Hosted by: Marsh's Library and University College Dublin
May 13, 2023
10:30 am - 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This event will consist of a demonstration of how to use Transkribus for humanities research, followed by a hands-on workshop where participants will work on transcribing a document of their own.

Transkribus is an AI-powered platform providing text recognition and layout analysis for historical documents. Using Transkribus, researchers can digitally transcribe, tag, and search manuscript and printed texts individually or collaboratively. To accelerate the transcription of manuscript documents, Transkribus offers a range of publicly accessible Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) models, as well as the option of training your own public or private HTR model tailored to your collection of documents.

Scholars and colleagues working on any kind of manuscript or archival materials who would like to participate and investigate the potential of this software for their research are invited to visit the website:

No prior experience with Transkribus or other transcription software is required.
