About

Handwritten Text Recognition Sandbox

This is a “playground” to explore how different handwritten text recognition models work with different types of documents. Using FromThePage’s “AI-Assist” feature you can get an overlay of the machine generated text over each page image, making it easy to see where AI gets it right and where it doesn’t. Using FromThePage’s “AI Text” button you can explore seeding transcription with AI generated text. These features will evolve over time as we gather input from transcribers and institutions.

There are facets on the right side that let you filter by era, language, and model.

Leave a comment on the page with your thoughts, feedback, challenges, frustrations — we read and value every one.

You’re welcome to explore any of the documents. If you want to try transcribing text, click “sign up to transcribe” at the top.

The AI Assist feature is currently in testing with 12 development partners. We plan to make it generally available in August of this year. If you'd like to be on the list when that's announced, or if you have any questions, please drop Sara a note at sara@fromthepage.com or schedule a Zoom call.

You can sign up for our AI newsletter here.
