OCR Help

4 posts in this topic

I searched for some ocr scripts but most of them are over my head. I need a script to take a screen shot (if that's the only way this works) and type what character it is (there is only one) from a "digital" style font. Or for it to compare a previous screen shot with the new one. Which ever is faster. Speed counts as this is for a game. How should i approach this?

what do you need to see in the comparison of the screen shots?

It would match the characters. like if it saw an "A" then it would look through the screen shots till it saw one that it thought was an "A". The problem is that there will probably be more than 26 files to look though, sounds like that method might take longer. Another problem both ways might encounter is that 1 and i look exactly the same in that font except one is offset to the left. but ill deal with that later.

my advice would be to understand the other scripts. OCR is fairly complicated in practice, especially when dealing with non-uniformed spaced fonts.
