Abstract

Computer assisted transcription tools can speed up the initial process of reading and transcribing texts. At the same time, new annotation tools open new ways of accessing the text in its graphical form. The balance and value of each method still needs to be explored. This session focuses on how research and developments in computer science can benefit most the human sciences (is transcribing a human assisted computer system or a computer assisted human process?) and how enhanced ergonomics may change the landscape of textual scholarship and palaeography.
