This project was undertaken for the Survey of Digitization course offered in Spring 2012. Using an "archive raider," a DIY copystand described in a 2010 ProfHacker blog post, I captured high-resolution images of telephone transcripts at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum. I tested Dragon Naturally Speaking and ABBBYY FineReader to determine which would offer the most efficient means of turning these images into plain text that could accompany the audio files previously made available by the Miller Center.
