Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a computer-assisted transcription system of old registers, handwritten in Arabic from the 19th century onwards, held in the National Archives of Tunisia (NAT). The proposed system assists the human supervisor to complete the transcription task as efficiently as possible. This assistance is given at all different recognition levels. Our system addresses different approaches for transcription of document images. It also implements an alignment method to find mappings between word images of a handwritten document and their respective words in its given transcription.
