Optical Character Recognition Introduction

Optical Character Recognition Introduction

This workshop will provide the basics for using optical character recognition software to create computer readable, searchable texts. Over three sessions we will focus on getting started in Abbyy, including file preparation, basic operations, and outputting into txt and html files. Since Abbyy is a proprietary software, we will also explore open source OCR software.

Software: Abbyy, Tesseract

There will be three workshops in this series. You are not required to come to everyone, but consistent attendance is encouraged.
