Dictionary Quality Control[edit]

The IALA Dictionary was digitized through a semi-automated OCR process. There is a need to check the quality of the digitizing process. Therefore the IALA Dictionary Editors are working their way through the Dictionary, marking each term appropriately as follows:

  • Terms which need further editing are added to Category 'Needs Editing'
