Melina Jander, an eTRAP Research Assistant, has written a short user report on our experience with the Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) tool Transkribus. We’re currently using Transkribus as part of our pilot project TrAIN (Tracing Authorship In Noise), which aims at defining the noise-threshold that affects computational analyses on HTR’d and OCR’d texts . How much noise do we have to correct? How much can we leave in?
The report describes progress made thus far. A second report will be published in 2017 to report on Transkribus‘ automation process on our data.
You can download the report from our Output page.
2016-11-04 Update: The Transkribus website advertises our user report here.
