[D] Looking for community interested in improving Google’s Cloud Vision OCR for older manuscripts

Is anyone aware of any efforts underway to extend Google’s Cloud Vision to include support for older (say 1500-1900 AD) manuscripts? I have seen how some libraries are digitizing their collections and thought it would be awesome to try to use the Handwriting OCR on them but my attempts have had less then stellar results so far. I figure that the current model hasn’t been trained on older handwriting and would be very much interested in seeing if I could get involved in a community or effort that is focused on this. Anyone have any recommendations?
