Transcribe Bentham

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I’m taking a great Digital Humanities class on analytics this semester. One of the projects we did for class was to try our hand at transcribing documents that have been digitized and gone through an OCR (text recognition) program. ┬áToday’s site is one of the options we had to try out transcription. I thought it was pretty cool, so I wanted to share it with all of you.

When you arrive at the site, you’ll find that they’ve devoted a featured section on the main page for New Users. This contains everything you need to get started like information on registering for an account, the Getting Started guide, and more information about the project. Next to that section, you’ll find the Existing Users section where you’ll find information on transcribing like transcription guidelines, guides to using the interface, and the option to select a manuscript.

At the moment they are currently 43% done with all of the manuscripts they need to transcribe. I think it is a really neat idea to crowdsource this kind of work. Even if a volunteer just transcribes a few pages as a lark, that’s still pages that someone else doesn’t need to transcribe.

Go check it out for yourself today and give it a try!
