Recently, two events coincided that inspired me to pull this code back out and take a second look at the process. The first is that our center charged a group of Computer Science majors with improving the effectiveness of our image processing algorithm as part of their senior capstone project; the second was the seemingly sudden burst of HTR promises, which depend on some level of layout analysis to work. In both cases, I was struck that improvements were accomplished in all cases with more processing power and additional layers of analysis.
Does not compute Using an “old” iPad on a plane to review transcription data was a clarifying task. For all the advances in research technologies, even simple tasks, such as viewing manuscript images on an institution’s website can crash a five year old browser, effectively rendering it inaccessible. I am not willing to accept that […]
The last blog covered a little bit about what challenge we laid out for ourselves in reworking the T-Pen Transcription interface. We set out to see if we could arrange and reorder the interface to be cleaner, easier to use, improve the access to the hidden tools, privilege the most used tools be more consistent in the tool functioning but […]
