Transkribus is one of the most popular tools for AI-based automated transcription of manuscripts and prints. Developed at the University of Innsbruck, users can access various tools and support from the community, which now has well over 150,000 users and is constantly publishing new models, thus making accessible and re-usable research available in the spirit of Open Science. In this Tool Gallery, advanced techniques will be taught in order to be able to use the possibilities of automated text transcription even more efficiently. The focus here will be on the tools for layout training.

Prerequisites & background Knowledge

Participation in the workshop requires a profound knowledge of Transkribus and the use of the “Transkribus Expert Client”. The workshop is therefore not suitable for Transkribus beginners. Please bring a laptop with the “Expert Client” installed and running. We will work with it. Internet will be provided via WLAN. The browser-based “Transkribus Lite Editor” will also be used. If you have not worked with this app before, you should get acquainted with the basic functionalities before the workshop.
