Text correction home

Getting started

Text correction allows Papakilo users to assist in editing the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) that allows us to identify search terms on a document. Due to the varying quality in the condition of some newspaper pages, or their micro-film scans, we sometimes need to go in and correct the OCR that was generated by computer.

If you would like to join in our effort to correct the newspaper OCR, which will increase the number of accurate search results, please email papakilodatabase@gmail.com and you will be sent an invitation to participate in our text correction. Mahalo nui!
