An OCR for Hieroglyphs


Some resources for those among you who are not afraid of code:

Mark-Jan Nederhof has created a new OCR software for hieroglyphs. It's a research project, so you need to be prepared to face python code, but you can download it at

He has already created another OCR, with a user interface, in his PhilologEg project. It requires also to unzip the software and to deal with the interface to start using it.

And finally, he has created a new system, called isut, for working with hieratic texts. I suggest following his github archives !
