The ultimate objective of any OCR is to simulate the human reading capability. Optical Character Recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine. Character Recognition refers to the process of converting printed Text documents into translated Unicode Text. The printed documents are scanned using standard scanners which produce an image of the scanned document. Lines are identified by an algorithm where the authors identify top and bottom of line and in each line character boundaries are calculated by an algorithm, using these calculation characters are isolated from the image and then they will classify each character by basic back propagation.
