There are numerous documents written in the Ottoman alphabet in the archives. In this study, the image of the words written in the Ottoman alphabet was converted into editable text by optical character recognition method. In this way the words are translated into text. Later, the characters in these words were made understandable by using their equivalents in the Turkish alphabet.

An algorithm that gives a similarity value is used for the comparison process.
