ManuLab is a software product for statistical analysis of encrypted historical manuscripts. The goal of this project was to create a framework (application) for document analysis adapted to historical manuscripts. The software design also includes document visualization, displaying pairs of manuscript pages with corresponding transcriptions.

ManuLab online is the online version of the ManuLab application. The base functionality was converted to PHP scripts.

The document analysis is performed via a chain of filters (main building elements). A filter represents any operation realizable on a document transcription divided into a set of pages. The implemented filters allow to change the reading direction, select sub-pages, or a subsection from the document, and calculate several statistics.
