The project aims to create technology and tools which would improve accessibility of digitized historic documents. These tools, based on state of the art methods from computer vision, machine learning and language modeling, enable existing digital archives and libraries to provide full-text search and content extraction for low quality historic printed and all hand written documents - which can not be automatically processed by the currently available tools. The project extends automation and capabilities of digitization pipeline by providing tools for automated quality assessment and control, quality improvement, automated text transcription and semi-automated hand written text transcription.
