Title Challenges of Semi-Automatic Transcription of Medieval Manuscripts
Abstract Transcription is a tedious task that can be made simple by handwritten text recognition techniques, such as word spotting. It will be shown how transcription can be done in a new way, but also how researchers can get easy access, using similar techniques, to manuscripts that are otherwise not searchable. Several improvements and challenges to the pipeline of word spotting and transcription will be presented.
