Subject: Re: 15.070 OCR on hand-printed texts
I once went to see OCR software demonstrated in Holland, which was able to
"read" Greek as long as one took the time to "train" it (30-60 hours was
the estimate on fairly regular type like Oxford Classical Texts). It was
very expensive though (3,000 in 1994) and I am not sure I remember the
name correctly (ProLector), or that the company still exists. But it was
impressive I have to say.
