Searchable Text!

I’ve found a great service that will take images with text and convert it to readable text and in the case of the internet, searchable text. I’m in the process of adding this to the images throughout the gallery. Hopefully this will help those doing research on WWI.

Here’s an example of what I’m currently working on. Make sure you scroll down below the large image: THE INDIAN, May 13, 1919, Page One.

The service I found is: ONLINE OCR.
