Computer Assisted Transcription of Text Images:
Results on The GERMANA corpus and analysis of improvements needed for
We present a study of the application of Computer Assisted Transcription of Text Images (CATTI) to a task which is much closer to real applications than other tasks previously studied. The new task consists in the transcription of a new publicly available historic handwritten document, called GERMANA. A detailed analysis of the main factors influencing the system performance are exposed and some strategies to circumvent them are proposed.
