Adam Matthew Digital's Quartex Adds Handwritten Text Recognition Transcription

Adam Matthew Digital’s Quartex platform launched Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) Transcription, a feature that “creates automated, fully searchable transcriptions of manuscript assets with a single click.”

“This exciting launch uses innovative AI technology to recognize a disparate range of characters, languages, and handwriting styles with a high degree of accuracy,” says Khal Rudin, managing director at Adam Matthew Digital.

Congregational Library & Archives (CLA), among other institutions, worked with the Quartex development team to test HTR Transcription on manuscript samples. Zachary Bodnar, CLA archivist, notes that “18th century handwriting is difficult to read at the best of times, but with HTR Transcription, we have an opportunity to help break that barrier to understanding and using our resources. Further, HTR’s ability to make names that appear in text searchable will be an immense boon to genealogists, researchers, and all our users.”
