Transcription Guidelines for Ground Truth OCR-D: DFG-funded Initiative for Optical Character Recognition Development
How to Transcribe in Level 3
The transcription is exclusively true to the original. If the graph can be converted with
Unicode, this coding is to be used exclusively. Several encodings are not
combined to form one graph.
If the graph is not available as standardized coding (Unicode), but via a community standardized
coding such as MUFI, this coding is to be used.
If options 1 and 2 are not possible, a code definition shall be used in consultation with the
OCR-D Coordination project following the joint agreements reached on major
international projects such as IMPACT, EEBO, ECCO.
