Abstract

Reprint of Japanese historical manuscripts is time-consuming and requires training because they are hand-written, and may contain characters different from those currently used. We proposed a framework for assisting the human process for reading Japanese historical manuscripts and implemented a part of a system based on the framework as a Web service. In this paper, we present a graphical user interface (GUI) for the system and reprint process through the GUI. We conducted a user test to evaluate the system with the GUI by a questionnaire. From the results of the experiment, we confirmed that the GUI can be used intuitively but we also found points to be improved in the GUI.
