Woodhouse dictionary OCR

Post by mahasacham » Mon May 14, 2018 8:19 pm

Has anyone run the Woodhoose English to Ancient Greek dictionary through an OCR program?

I would love to get my hands on a XML file (or a plain text file) of the dictionary so I can write a command line search app with it.

You can ask the people at Lace to do the OCR.


They do provide Frädersdorff.

It's been done already. See this thread:

I have the file floating around somewhere if it's not available from that source.

EDIT: I've posted the docx and the dsl file at archive.org: https://archive.org/details/Woodhouse
