+ Experiments with Transkribus and early printed text

We love hearing what our users have been getting up to with our Transkribus platform for Handwritten Text Recognition.

Annika Rockenberger from the National Library of Norway has written a blog about her experiments with Transkribus as part of her work on a digital edition of the writings of the German journalist, historian and poet Georg Greflinger (1620-1677).

Annika is working with early printed text which cannot be adequately recognised with OCR.  She explains that Transkribus users can train a model to recognise this kind of printed text, with around 5000 words of transcribed material.

Unfortunately in this case, digitised images from tightly bound books have made it difficult for the programme to detect the location of text on a page.  Annika hopes to continue her experiments with Transkribus at a later date with better quality images.  Read more on the Greflinger Digital Edition blog:
