Handwritten Text Dataset

Project Overview:



We specialize in assembling datasets to train cutting-edge machine learning models. For instance, in our recent project, we aimed to enhance Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems by creating an extensive dataset of handwritten texts. Consequently, this dataset serves as a crucial tool for improving OCR accuracy in interpreting various handwriting styles.


Our team has successfully compiled a rich collection of handwritten documents. We meticulously transcribed and annotated this dataset, which encompasses a wide range of languages, alphabets, writing instruments, paper types, and unique handwriting styles. Consequently, it ensures a high-quality resource for OCR system development.
