Site Search

PastView's comprehensive search facility is powered by three main elements: Attributes, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Transcription (including Audio transcription).

When items are uploaded to PastView they are allocated attribute sets (all the different ways an item or image can be described). These terms can be searched to drill down to the most related items. Our software also searches documents for given text, accurately retrieving any matches through character recognition. Transcription and audio transcription provides yet another means of searching.

Visitors can search with ease and confidence, accessing exactly what they want in a number of ways, at the click of a button.
