Place to attach text transcription of record from "difficult to read" images.
Various images of records written in German Kurrent style are **difficult** to read.
Please consider a way to attach small text files to records for others' benefit. It is useful not only as a readable rendition of the original record but also as a template for other records of that time, locale and author's handwriting idiosyncrasies.
I have transcribed dozens of them to text and would like to share the results. Some are family, some not. As time goes on I expect this dozen to reach 100s.
Once a complete records is transcribed (it might take an hour), useful details emerge like "step" relations, cause of death, widow status, etc. - facts not usually seen in the original transcription. Too often I do then find original transcription errors like son/father reversed.
This idea relates to an image to text transcription, not a language translation - see example below.
Of course parts of records are indecipherable, perhaps then use the underscore character when uncertain.
This is not a German Kurrent only issue.
