re: The Scribes Platform (Upper Level)


Twelve scribes wait for their reading blocks to be activated. When a reader assigned to that reading block begins to read, the scribe (hearing the text simultaneously through stereo headphones) types the spoken text as it is read onto a computer keyboard at their station. This data is gathered into centralized computer servers and projected simultaneously onto the Data Wall (a projection screen situated above and behind the Reader Recall Station and spanning the entire width of the area).

Each scribe station consists of a table and chair, and a computer keyboard and monitor.

The data network has been programmed by Alexandr Krestovsky and Hynek Svoboda in Prague.
