Adam Matthew Starts Using Handwritten Text Recognition

Adam Matthew is using artificial intelligence to add full-text search technology—handwritten text recognition (HTR)—to its digital manuscript collections, starting with Colonial America’s third module, The American Revolution. It features handwritten documents about North America dating from 1606 to 1822, which are now fully searchable. “The HTR application uses complex algorithms and artificial intelligence to determine possible combinations of characters in manuscripts,” according to Adam Matthew. “This enables relevant handwritten text to be identified at document level, allowing users to easily navigate between highlighted search results.”
