Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
