The Dutchess I.

Free Public AI Model for Handwritten Text Recognition with Transkribus

The Dutchess I.

This public AI model for Transkribus is a powerful combination of four major handwriting recognition models, providing a comprehensive solution for deciphering historical documents from the Low Countries. It covers a wide range of handwritings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, utilizing a rich dataset contributed by the Nationaal Archief (National Archives of the Netherlands) and the Stadsarchief Amsterdam (Amsterdam City Archives), among other institutions. The model is an amalgamation of the Amsterdam Notarial Super Model, Dutch_XVII_Century, IJsberg, and Dutch Mountains (18th Century), offering an extensive collection of notarial handwritings, chronicles, Dutch East India Company documents, and more.
