Transcribus (resource)

Friends:

I am passing this link to an article in Euronews on from the National Coalition of Independent Scholars.  Before you get too excited, note that users may need to transcribe 75 pages manually to teach the algorithm how to recognize the handwriting and the software will be "commercially available," [i.e. for a charge] soon.  Still, it is a very promising initiative.
