ULB´s full-text service

For associates of the Technical University of Darmstadt, the ULB will take over full-text indexing in a machine-readable form of image-digitised texts. OCR methods are used to generate searchable full texts from the image data.

Converting your text base

Machine-readable, structured information resources are generated from digitised texts – on request with intellectually prepared layout recognition and typing of the text regions.
As a general rule, searchable full texts can be created from all types of texts – manuscripts, rare books and modern texts. The platform Transkribus is used for the conversion.

Basis for the full-text creation:

  • Upload to the processing software
  • Automatic layout recognition
  • Automatic text recognition

Further steps can also be carried out by agreement with you:

  • Manual correction of layout recognition
  • Technically supported manual typing of text regions
  • Manual text correction

The finished files can be provided directly in Transkribus or emailed to you in the desired format.
