This is a blog about the problems of achieving automated recognition of handwriting, especially as found in old documents. It has been quite a journey and one that is by no means over, which should come as no surprise. Subsequent blog posts will tell the story of that journey.

The project includes a website that describes the process in more detail and an app that is used to carry out the recognition. Details on these are to follow.

This is a project that has been developed so far by me alone and it is time to seek collaboration from others, although I will continue to move it forward as best I can. If you can help in any way then please get in touch.
