DFG Project on Postcorrection System PoCoTo
The postcorrection of historical documents obtained via OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is an important field of research at CIS. Over a period of almost a decade, we have built the postcorrection system PoCoTo. PoCoTo is currently available as an open source desktop application (link here). PoCoTo has already found a large community of users at major libraries and research institutions.
German Research Foundation (DFG) has agreed to fund a 13-month project that will develop a web-based extension of PoCoTo. The project team at CIS consists of Florian Fink, Uwe Springmann and Klaus U. Schulz.
