Abstract

This report describes the work of the tranScriptorium project, which intends to produce software applications which will 'read' historical handwritten documents, and produce transcripts for these manuscripts. It describes the process in non-technical language, and explains the potential benefits of making available millions of pages of hitherto digitized, but untranscribed and relatively inaccessible, manuscripts. The tranScriptorium consortium consists of: Universitat Politècnica de València – UPV (Spain, lead institution) Universiy of Innsbruck – UIBK (Austria) National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” – NCSR (Greece) University College London – UCL (UK) Institute for Dutch Lexicology – INL (Netherlands) University London Computer Centre – ULCC (UK) This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 600707.
