AI has advanced within the past few years, and this presentation will cover new developments within both Adobe Premiere and Adobe Acrobat to assist libraries, museums, and archives in creating greater accessibility to their collections.

As a Collections Photographer working in both museum and historical society settings-digitizing 2D, 3D, and miscellaneous ephemera has been a priority. To increase accessibility of these digital files, AI tools can be implemented, which assists scholars, the general public, and better protects our collections.

Although not intended as a complete workshop, this presentation will use digital film transfers and documents as examples to cover Adobe Priemiere's transcript tools, and Adobe Acrobat's OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature so that attendees can better understand what AI can do for their collection.
