Drumroll please! Transkribus now has more than 15,000 users! Our users are based mainly in Europe but also extend into Africa, Australia, America and other parts of the globe.
This expansion of our user-base is a significant achievement for the READ project. Back when the project started in January 2016, there were only 2828 registered Transkribus users. And a broad user network is very important for us. By working with an enormous variety of documents provided by different researchers, projects and institutions, we are developing robust Handwritten Text Recognition technology that can cope with all sorts of scripts.
So we look forward to collaborating with lots more new users in 2019 and beyond! And if you haven’t tried out Transkribus yet, why not have a go?
