The following teaser is from the READ website.
At the READ [Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents] project, we are dedicated to using new technologies to make historical documents more accessible. Our latest forthcoming tool is an important part of this mission. Our free e-learning app will allow users to train themselves to decipher any sort of historical handwriting. It will be particularly useful for students who are just beginning to work with historical material but could be beneficial to anyone who wants to get to grips with a certain script.
Thanks to ResearchBuzz for the heads-up.
