The English Eagle

Free Public AI Model for Handwritten Text Recognition with Transkribus

The English Eagle

“The English Eagle” is a robust AI model for Transkribus, rooted in the English Handwriting M3 model, which not only features Bentham’s handwriting but also integrates a broad range of other sources. These sources span several centuries, from the 17th to the 20th, contributing to the model’s robustness and broad application potential. The continuous and collective efforts of the Transkribus community further enhance the model. They provide ongoing data contributions, facilitating periodic updates that ensure the model’s constant evolution, improvement, and adaptability to diverse and changing research requirements.
