Status

You can assign different statuses to the individual pages of your document, depending on how much progress has already been made on them. You can choose between the following statuses: 

Status: New

New applies to newly uploaded documents, which have not been edited manually yet.

Status: In Progress

Once you start editing a page and later-on save it, the Status automatically jumps to “In progress”. This status describes all the pages that have been looked at by a human being, but aren’t completely finished.

Status: Done:

Status Done means that the pages have been transcribed.

Status: Final

Transcribed pages that have been reviewed receive the status “final”.

To work with Transkribus you need so-called test sets which are used to train the AI. Such test sets can be selected during the creation of the Ground Truth. The chosen documents receive a special edit status, namely “final” and are later collected in separate documents. For each project an extra test set should be created. 

Status: Ground Truth

Ground Truth is the basis of the creation of the HTR models. It is a typewritten copy of a document which is 100 % correct. It is used to train the A.I. Any mistake in the Ground Truth will train Transkribus to learn something wrong. Therefore, it is important that the Ground Truth is a document which is as close as possible to the original text.
