Quartex presents: Automated Transcription for Handwritten & Manuscript Materials
The ability to automatically generate transcriptions of handwritten and manuscript materials has been called the ‘holy grail’ of digital asset management. Highly coveted but firmly out of reach. Until now.
Quartex, from Adam Matthew Digital, is already at the cutting-edge of technology with Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) which makes your written assets fully searchable. And it’s now the only platform to offer HTR Transcription – for automatic, editable transcriptions, generated in-platform and extending search even further beyond metadata.
In this session, we will explore HTR Transcription in the context of the rich discovery layer available to you when you choose Quartex. We will discuss the potential of HTR Transcription for archival institutions, both in terms of enhancing discoverability and accessibility, and Quartex’s role as a transcription one-stop-shop for all your written, printed text and A/V resources.
Many repositories, from archives to public and university libraries, have already partnered with Quartex to test the power of HTR Transcription on their most prized handwritten assets. We invite you to explore these results with us and consider how this ground-breaking enhancement of HTR could open up your digital collections to new communities of users.
