Augmenting OCR Working Group (A-OCR) Overview

This is a community derived encyclopedia of information about the Augmenting OCR working group. Members of this working group and the community are encouraged to work together to develop content and deliverables that will serve the broader digitization community.

A-OCR Goals

We are focusing the efforts of the working group to put together materials to help the community get more from their OCR strategies. Topics we are gathering material on include:

  • known effective practices for getting the most from any OCR software.
  • known issues that hinder good (useful) OCR output.
  • reporting findings after working with real image data and programmers to improve parsing of OCR output.
  • lists of OCR software currently being utilized by the natural history collections community.
