Segmentation is a crucial stage of working with Handwritten Text Recognition in our Transkribus platform. Digitised images of historical documents must be segmented into text regions, lines and baselines before they can be transcribed manually or automatically. Segmentation can be performed automatically by the software to a high level of accuracy. For more complex documents, users may then need to make some manual corrections – moving or deleting baselines for example.
If you’re new to segmentation in Transkribus, we have a new video tutorial which will help you get started.
You can find out more about working with Transkribus in our How to Guides.
