In this paper, an Optical Character recognition system based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). The ANN is trained using the Back Propagation algorithm. In the proposed system, each typed English letter is represented by binary numbers that are used as input to a simple feature extraction system whose output, in addition to the input, are fed to an ANN. Afterwards, the Feed Forward Algorithm gives insight into the enter workings of a neural network followed by the Back Propagation Algorithm which compromises Training, Calculating Error, and Modifying Weights.
