Handwritten Text Recognition, German


The proposed dataset consisted of a subset of documents from the Ratsprotokolle collection composed of minutes of the council meetings held from 1470 to 1805 (about 30.000 pages), which is used in the READ project. This dataset is written in Early Modern German. The number of writers is unknown.
