Flanders Heritage Library

OCR Quality Assessment

ONGOING

Odoma is supporting the Flanders Heritage Library in systematically assessing the quality of the OCR of newspaper collections in Flanders and selecting the best OCR tools for improving them.


This project includes the creation of new OCR and the comparison of different OCR engines.


Ultimately, such study will enable the Flanders Heritage Library to make targeted investments to improve the OCR of newspapers from different collections in Flanders, cutting costs and delivering improved services to their users.


Added value:


  • Systematic knowledge of OCR quality

  • Able to use the best OCR tool available

  • Significant reduction in future costs and uncertainties
