What are the latest recommendations for handwriting recognition please? I have a large volume of handwritten family notes from my elderly mother and want to ‘OCR’ capture these into text.
I have scanned them into PDF but am wondering what tool will most accurately turn them into text. As all the notes are written by one person, are there apps that can be trained to be more accurate if the writing is consistent?
Good call @ybbond . I tried Google Docs and the results are excellent. Not 100% accurate as you would expect but I have 31 pages pretty good text of my mothers notes to now go through. Very happy and a great solution.
the result is not the same as other OCR technologies, in which the text will be placed as invisible layer on top of the scanned image. Google’s approach just put text below the images, but sometime this approach is more useful and concise.
Has anyone heard of a tool that would ask you to write some sample text to train its model on your handwriting?
I am not a machine-learning expert, but my understanding of the handwriting OCR challenges is that there are endless handwriting styles and you account for all… Training a tool specifically for one script seems achievable.
