OCR-D Platforms

In OCR-D, we strive for maximum transparency and communication of our work internally as well as externally. The project is active on various platforms, which are mostly open to the professional public to read and participate.

GitHub – try it out yourself: On GitHub you can find the latest status of our developmental work on the OCR-D framework and the module projects.
