Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Electronic document management systems provide great benefits to society. Software tools such as word processors are used in generation, storage, and retrieval of documents in specific formats. Using such tools, documents can be edited, printed, or distributed electronically across networks. However, with paper documents, the previous tasks cannot be accomplished by computers, so there is a need to extract the information in documents to store them in a computerized format. Handwritten text recognition has significant potential.
