Abstract

Our project aimed to understand, utilize and improve the open source Optical Character Recognizer (OCR) software, OCRopus, to better handle some of the more complex recognition issues such as unique language alphabets and special characters such as mathematical symbols. We extended the functionality of OCRopus to work with any language by creating support for UTF-8 character encoding. We also created a character and language model for the Hungarian language. This will allow other users of the software to preform character recognition on Hungarian input without having to train a completely new character model.
