Word spotting can be used to make a semi-automatic transcription of the text. The idea is that the user should mark up the word that needs to be transcribed and then the word spotter finds all occurrences of that word. Hence, the word needs to be transcribed only once, and the process can be performed in arbitrary word order by multiple transcribers.
