|Franken +||The Initiative for Digital Humanities Media and Culture (IDHMC) at Texas A&M University as part of its Early Modern OCR Project (eMOP) has created a new tool called Franken+ that provides a way to create font training for the Tesseract OCR engine using page images. This is in contrast to Tesseract's document method of font training which involves using a word processing program with a modern font. ''''Franken+ works in conjunction with PRImA's Aletheia tool and allows users to easily and quickly identify one or more idealized forms of each glyph found on a set of page images. These identified forms are then used to generate a set of Franken-page images matching the page characteristics documented in Tesseract's training instructions but using a font used in an actual early modern printed document.||Imaging, Analysing||Texas A&M/Bryan Tarpley||http://dh-emopweb.tamu.edu/Franken+/||https://github.com/idhmc-tamu/FrankenPlus||Good, webpage has full explanation||Apache 2.0||December 2013||11/1/2014||Collection Management|

|BitCurator Access||BitCurator Access software tools will assist collecting institutions |
(libraries, archives, and museums) in providing web-based and local
access to born-digital materials held on disk images. BitCurator Access
will focus on software that simplifies access to raw and
forensically-packaged disk images, allowing collecting institutions to
incorporate these objects into access environments in a manner that
reflects the original order and relevant environmental context. The use
of open source digital forensics software will allow for detailed
analysis of file and file system provenance, quality and accessibility
of files, metadata in files and the file system, and residual (non-file
system) data contained within disk images.

|File Rename Tool (FRT)||The File Rename Tool (FRT):|
Deliveries dates are obviously available on newspapers so that they have the
possibility to be saerched for by data later on. If a newspaper is not available
in day folders, the ‘File Renaming Tool’ can help to bring them into the
right structure and support libraries in renaming and reordering their
images according to the Europeana Newspapers project specifications.
The main idea of FRT is that images, which may be stored on year level,
can be quickly ordered on the basis of issues and publishing date.

The code base is large, but the documentation is good, so writing these extensions shouldn’t be too hard.||The Pyton code looks good, there are not many comments, but for the important objects (within the comments) references to the API docs are given.

details, or subregions, within an image to be highlighted and described,

them accessible in indices. Interim results as well as final versions
can be compiled at any time as an online/offline hypermedia publication.
This makes HyperImage a suitable research environment for digital
humanities and eScience projects, providing a common research and
publication environment for groups as well as individuals.
