This model can decipher a wide range of Kurrent handwriting in german from the 16th to the early 19th century. Especially in the earlier centuries this model might work better than the usual Transkribus Kurrent model.
This is a generic model trained on a diverse dataset. Such models provide good results without the need for any extra training work. However, the best results can usually be achieved by training a special model for homogenous material, e. g. texts written by the same person or from a narrow historical period.
Curated by the Transkribus team, this model is occasionally updated with community data for continuous improvement.
