This paper proposes a performance model for estimating the user time needed to transcribe small collections of handwritten documents using a keyword spotting system (KWS) that provides a number of possible transcriptions for each word image. The model assumes that only information obtained from a small training set is available, and establishes the constraints on the performance measures to achieve a reduction of the time for transcribing the content with respect to the time required by human experts. The model is complemented with a procedure for computing the parameters of the model and eventually estimating the improvement of the time to achieve a complete and error-free transcription of the documents.

Abstract

This paper proposes a performance model for estimating the user time needed to transcribe small collections of handwritten documents using a keyword spotting system (KWS) that provides a number of possible transcriptions for each word image. The model assumes that only information obtained from a small training set is available, and establishes the constraints on the performance measures to achieve a reduction of the time for transcribing the content with respect to the time required by human experts. The model is complemented with a procedure for computing the parameters of the model and eventually estimating the improvement of the time to achieve a complete and error-free transcription of the documents.
