If like us you are excited by ways to revolutionise access to archives through the use of new technology and innovation, you might be interested in a conference on Handwritten Text Recognition in Germany early next year (2016) as part of the co:op project.
Technology meets Scholarship, or how Handwritten Text Recognition will Revolutionize Access to Archival Collections.
Hessian State Archives, Marburg, Germany
19-21 January 2016
Participation at the event is free, but please register on the project website where you will also find the detailed programme.
We’ve posted before about HTR – see also Magic in Action which refers to tranScriptorium and Update in developments in HTR technology which looks at the READ (Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents) project.
