Optical character recognition usually denoted by “OCR” is a process of producing editable textual form from non-editable text. In simple words: It is a process of extracting text from images of either printed or handwritten text. Image can be scanned document from scanner, photo of document consisting text or may be subtitles in videos. The editable text converted by optical character recognition engine allow individual to edit, copy, search content in document. This Project consists of LSTM (Long Short Term Memory) based recognition engine, a popular form of RNN (Recurrent Neural Network) provided by Tesseract. Latest research deals with challenges regarding complexity of English handwritings and rapid conversion into editable form. Hence, a system is required which can handle all levels of English text and recognize most appropriate characters among these levels.
