Specific Issues Needing Work

This page is meant to serve as an ongoing list of known topics where work is needed that would improve things like OCR output, overall parsing results, and meaningful data set creation for digitization and data transcription by a human-in-the-loop.

Please add to the list.

  1. how to get OCR to ignore a map (reduce OCR confusion)
  2. ... and ___ present a challenge and confuse OCR and parsing.
  3. figure out an algorithm that would separate images into sets with no handwriting, little handwriting (mostly text typed or printed), lots of handwriting
  4. hi-tech parsers need user interfaces
  5. setting up a service-based architecture

If you have one or more methods worked out to address a given issue, please create a link from here to a page explaining your strategy and use examples where possible.
