Convert scanned documents with handwriting into text

Dear all,


Fully aware that this is not exactly what myscript but because I think it is related I am starting the topic anyway.


I am looking for software that can recognize handwriting. Like the samples in the attached file.

So in the examples above I am not looking for the typed text ("Land", "Utrecht") but for the written text -> "NL", "UTRECHT"). Can anybody tell whether there a good alternatives out there which can help me achieve this?


Kind regards,

Marc

Dear Marc,


Thank you for contacting us.


As far as we understand your use case, you want to perform handwriting recognition from scanned files not from strokes captured when users write. Is that correct?


If this is right, then MyScript cannot help as indicated on  https://developer.myscript.com/docs/concepts/digital-ink-vs-ocr/

Dear Gwenaëlle, you are right. I want to perform handwriting recognition and I am aware that MyScript cannot help. But I assumed that someone could point me in the right direction (as the area is related)....
