METAe (The Metadata Engine Project)

http://meta-e.uibk.ac.at/

METAe will develop application software focusing on: the automatic recognition and extraction of metadata from printed material, especially books and journals, an omnifont OCR-engine for the recognition of "Fraktur" (a German style of black-letter text type) and other seldom type faces used in European printing history, on the development of five historical dictionaries supporting the OCR-engine, on an XML/SGML search engine and on an open source library for a simple web-application for presenting digitised printed material.
