The purpose of the ODL Text
Capture Study was to develop guidance, case studies, workflows
and scenarios to ensure a more uniform approach to delivering
effective, accurate and cost efficient text capture.
The following items were delivered through the study:
• A guidance document for Oxford University on text capture
• Further advice specifically for ODL that takes the general
guidance to a more detailed level
• A number of scenarios built from existing examples of
Oxford text capture projects detailed.
The results of the Study
