Forum Topic - Terrific Transcription Tools!
Discussion Lead: Rich Lowe
This past winter, I accomplished a large amount of transcribing for the Van Buren county site using OmniPage Pro Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software as well as doing some work with Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNS). All county coordinators could benefit from finding out more about productivity tools like these, useful for adding more data to their county sites, especially OCR. I plan to give a 15 or 20 minute demo on OCR and those who have used DNS can share their experiences with everyone else.
Here are several projects I've done with OCR and one with DNS this year:
- 1890 Portrait and Biographical Album of Jeffeson and Van Buren Counties, Iowa
- Van Buren County Iowa American Guide Series
- Papers of J. A. Keck
- World War I Veterans Van Buren County, IA
- Spanish-American War Veterans Van Buren County, IA
