Training a Handwritten Text Recognition Model

Learn how to train a recognition-model in Transkribus. After the training the model will help you to automatically transcribe and search your collection. You will need between 25 and 75 pages of manual transcription to get started. If you are working with printed rather than handwritten text, a smaller amount of training data is usually needed. Also, when using a base model, the amount of training data can be reduced. The model training functionality is not automatically included in the standard Transkribus interface. You can contact us at if you would like to use the feature.
