Hebrew OCR program #general


Paul Silverstone
 

When I was in Israel last I visited the Haganah Archives and copied
several hundred pages into JPG copies. My plan was to convert the JPGs
into text files in order to translate them digitally.
However I have so far been unable to find a program which will do this.
The copied pages are almost all typewritten Hebrew. There are OCR
programs that translate English JPG into text. Can anyone suggest a
similar program for Hebrew?

I would not call that "translating", but [perhaps] "transposing".

Can anyone suggest a similar program for Hebrew?
I find *Google Keep* and *Google Android Assistant* do
quite reasonable jobs, perhaps they use the same engine.

The Hebrew-English word processing program Dagesh had a pretty good
Hebrew OCR functionality. However, I don't know if the program is
still around.

Hope this helps,
