Inspiration

It will be very easy to extract information such as text from scanned images . That is the inspiration for this project .

What it does

It is a simple OCR based on computer vision which extract text from images using tesseract . It recognizes many languages and we can add more into it . It can also scan business cards and provide you required information.

How we built it

It is built using Python and using tesseract which is used for image processing and computer vision .

What we learned

We learned a lot about computer vision and Tesseract and the power of Optical Character Recognition .

What's next for OCR - Computer Vision

We are trying to implement the app in web using Flask . It will have an option to upload the image in the web app and the extracted text will be shown in the web app .
