Design and Implementation of Character Recognition and Object Recognization using Neural Networks
Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic conversion of scanned
images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. It is widely used as a form of data entry from
some sort of original paper data source, whether documents, sales receipts, mail, or any number of printed records. It is a
common method of digitizing printed texts so that they can be electronically searched, stored more compactly, displayed online,
and used in machine processes such as machine translation, text-to-speech and text mining. OCR is a field of research
in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision.
