PanLex Talk on Balinese Palm-leaf Manuscripts


January 22, 2020 ||

On December 16, 2019, PanLex director David Kamholz spoke at the San Francisco Center for the Book on PanLex and the Internet Archive’s joint project to digitize Balinese palm-leaf manuscripts. You can view a recording of the presentation below, and slides are available here. The presentation introduces Balinese manuscripts, covers technical challenges in supporting Balinese script (the writing system in which the manuscripts are written), invites the audience to interactively analyze core features of the Balinese script, demos the new Palm Leaf Wiki, and recognizes the team of Balinese contributors who are managing the transcription (typing) of manuscripts on the wiki. To date, more than 3,000 leaves and 92 complete works have been transcribed.
