(Budget is only a placeholder. We are interviewing mainly to identify potential skills.)
We are looking for OCR (optical character recognition) experts who can convert image scans of minority language word lists and tables into searchable Unicode text (in tabbed plain text format, .txt). Accuracy will be of utmost importance. We are highly familiar with this process and have already been doing OCR of materials in rare languages for many years.
Please note that the budget is only a placeholder and can be discussed in the interview. We are willing to pay more for top skills.
We are looking to source talent for long-term collaboration. You will have a chance to network with the world's top linguists (language scientists). We are interviewing you for your skills and suitability for long-term collaboration, rather than simply to get a short task done.
Please apply ONLY if you can:
1. Proficiently read and write the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA): if you can recognize characters such as: ð
2. Proficiently operate advanced OCR software such as ABBYY Finereader
