The main objective of SimancasSearch is the development of innovative and efficient techniques for i) enriching large handwritten document collections with transcription and semantic information, and ii) searching and localizing logical records in large collections. These techniques will rely on the probabilistic lattices and the PrIx’s derived from the HTR process in order to represent the uncertainty associated not only to the recognition process but also with the handwritten text itself. The developed techniques will be applied to the Royal Decrees of Appointment of the General Archive of Simancas.
