The Challenge of Handwriting Recognition and Extraction
Wim De Maertelaere, Moonoia      June 2017

Identifying and extracting handwritten information is still a challenge in the scanning process. The reasons for that are plenty: original documents may have poor quality as paper deteriorates easily; notes may have been written on the fly; signatures are almost always unreadable (not to mention that half of the population writes "1" as if it were "7" and the other half writes "7" as if it were "4"!)
