Handwriting recognition and indexing on phone coming soon to FamilySearch. Woohoo!
Michael W. McCormick, AG® said: This morning at RootsTech I went to presentation called FamilySearch record innovations. The most exciting parts for me when they said they’re going to be doing more and more with handwriting recognition and we will see more records actually pop up online that will have the tag saying they’ve been indexed by a computer. And equally exciting is the new cell phone app that’s going to help with Indexing they said will be released next year in 2021. I made a post a month ago on this forum that I was trying to talk about how excited I was for a features like this to come but I worded it in a way that kind of created some argument so I apologize for that but mostly I just want to say I’m really excited for this technology that’s coming. It sounds like we might be a couple years out from being able to index images when we’re browsing images. They actually said that that’s not going to be ready at the same time but it’s on the road map.
