Printed Ukrainian 20th century

Free Public AI Model for Handwritten Text Recognition with Transkribus

Printed Ukrainian 20th century

This is a general-purpose model created with the intention to be used for proofreading books of various orthographies on Ukrainian Wikisource.

The main material for this model were books written in the first half of 20th century, but also includes some pages from 19th and 21st century. Texts were written in various orthographies:
Modern, Skrypnykivka, Zhelekhivka, Maksymovichka and Kulishivka.

This is only the initial version of the project. The model will be further improved with the materials that the model was found to perform poorly on.

The training and book transcriptions were done by Nazar Kotsur, a student of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.
