OCR text

A collection of digitized texts marks the start of a research project —  or does it?

For many social sciences and humanities researchers, creating searchable, editable, and machine-readable digital texts out of heaps of paper in archival boxes or from books painstakingly sourced from overlooked corners of the library can be a tedious, time-consuming process.

Online Access to OCR Software Now Available

Posted: Dec, 01, 2016

Data comes in many formats, some more useful than others. Many researchers -- particularly those who work in archives -- have to convert images or PDFs of text into usable, editable text using optical character recognition (OCR).
