I've just subscribed to the list and would like to present myself.
My intention is to scan, transcribe and encode (for organizing and
searching) my collection of family postcards, primarily for my own use,
with minimal cost and reasonable effort.
The links to a postcard and related problems you can find here:
I intend to use Transkribus (http://transkribus.eu) but I still have to
learn a lot about the system. I have also an old version of oXygen but
had no motivation to use it systematically (I used XML only indirectly
for corpora creation). I work mostly in Emacs on GNU/Linux Debian.
