This weekend (after watching ballet folklorico videos for two hours) I decided it was time for me to learn about the history of Mexico. It’s a bit embarrassing to admit that I had zero clue about any significant event in mexican history. I grabbed a couple of books at the Palos Verdes library…
I like this post because she is doing/did, what most people do. Or perhaps, should do. She was interested in a subject and decided to learn more about it, so she went-to-a-library.. not just “googled it”. I can appreciate what she did and can relate. I hope for more people to do this.
In an announcement made earlier this last week, Mocavo is just shy of producing a software that will recognize handwriting.
This is very interesting and exciting news for the genealogy community. With software such as this, the computer program will be able to recognize, and translate historic handwritten documents.
Currently, reading and attempting to understand the cursive writing of our ancestors is difficult and most often not legible. If this OCR (Optical Character Recognition), is a success then this will be groundbreaking in the research field.
Let’s see what time will hold for the savvy technicians at Mocavo. I am looking forward to seeing what they accomplish.
