Problem with OCR

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I almost have read all the topics about OCR. I can say all of the topics are for 2009 and before.

Some of them doesn't work at all for me, some works but gives error, and one of them was I think just for learning fonts (then it shows words in a small part of screen in 70 sec which is so long), another one needed office 2003 (MODI), I installed it and didn't work again.

The letters that I need OCR to read has different backgrounds.

Can anyone please show me an OCR which works great with no problem?

Also is there any way to take a snapshot of all letters (26 letters and 10 numbers), and save them as image, and then tell OCR that which one matches which one?

Thank you

Have you tried tesseract ocr?  I have been able to use it, both when installed using the built executable and when running it through Cygwin without issue.

Yes, I tried it, and gives error.

I found this post and it worked.

Is there any way to tell the script in that post, to look for all white pixel with 10 shades variation (like in pixelsearch parameter) and then convert them to characters.

All I want it to read is only A-Z, a-z, and 0-9

I appreciate if you would answer to this, too:

Here are a few posts you can study: Tesseract Simple Example, Getting Tesseract to Work and Tesseract doesnt detect the easiest image.

Pixels with 10 shades variation: I don't think you can do this. Tesseract just finds all text in the image.

26 letters and 10 digits: I don't think you can do it and it should not be necessary. Tesseract is able to recognize letters and digits.

Absolutely wrong way....

Think some seconds about what you would perceive "better" if YOU would be an OCR-Software!

First, a "picture" with a load of "shi*" informations aka shaded "pixels", or second, a "preprocessed" (aka nicetoOCRing) picture.

If you are serious, you would prefer a preprocessed and easytoOCR picture. So why not make the "picture" better to "read" instead of force the OCR-software to calculate letters from shi*?

Btw. it would be very helpful if you could show one/some of those pictures you want to OCR

This isn't for solving CAPTCHAs is it?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
