“OCR4all is better than Google”


“OCR4all is better than Google OCR for early modern printed books.

Klaus Graf pointed me to a suggestion from Lajos Adamik on using Google Docs for OCR. It’s a great idea – Google is fast and fairly accurate. For some projects I’d definitely use it.

But not for most early printed books.”

Ein Gedanke zu „“OCR4all is better than Google”“

  1. I completely agree with you. Google also has the “weakness” that you can only convert one image at a time. In addition, the quality of the OCR depends strongly on the print quality of the original, independent of the platform you use. With these limitations, I can still recommend Google with a clear conscience.
