OCR-D will also be present at this year’s Bibliothekartag, which will take place virtually from 16-18 June 2021 and on two days in Bremen. The OCR-D project is participating with two presentations on the current status of the funding initiative and on the collaborative creation of training materials.

Elisabeth Engl describes the current status of the OCR-D software and gives an outlook on the many planned application scenarios, which are at the centre of the third project phase. Kay-Michael Würzner and Robert Sachunsky report on their experiences with setting up and conducting a collaborative transcription initiative at SLUB Dresden to create OCR training material and models by means of OCR-D and low-threshold annotation tools.
