Prioritise the access & discovery of your digital collections with PastView

 26th October 2023

Introducing Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) to our new Text Recognition Service

We are proud to be one of the first digital collection platforms to offer Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR)! 

Both Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) will shortly be available in the PastView Platform, providing users with the ability to automatically recognise text within typed and handwritten documents. Utilising AI, our Text Recognition system can recognise typed text and a huge array of handwriting styles from historical documents, automatically adding this information as metadata to support enhanced searching of your collections.

This feature will be available to everyone in the coming weeks, here we invite you to join our PastView webinar on 26th October 2023 at 13:00-13:45pm (BST) where we will walk you through the PastView system, answering any questions you may have.
