eScriptorium is an automatic transcription tool for Handwritten Text Recognition.
The results of the transcription tool are quite impressive. In the webinar by Peter Stokes, the use of eScriptorium is demonstrated using the example of a complex medieval Hebrew manuscript. Questions were answered by Peter Stokes and his colleagues Daniel Stoekl ben Ezra and lead developer Robin Tissot.
The webinar was hosted by Leibniz Institute of European History in Mainz.
