Abstract

This project, part of the larger Emergent Transcriptions initiative, designed and implemented tools which will assist archives in digitally storing historical manuscripts and their transcriptions, and enables searching of their collections. Our contributions to the initiative included optimizing existing visual processing systems using a genetic algorithm, and building a database and web front-end for the system, to facilitate searching and editing of archival collections. We also redesigned core features using good Software Engineering principles to make future system additions easier.
