Optical Character Recognition for Less

July 10, 2020

Optical character recognition software was priced high, low, and in between. Sure, the software mostly worked if you like fixing four or five errors per scanned page with 100 words on it. Oh, you use small sized type. That’s eight to 10 errors per scanned page. Good enough I suppose.

You may want to check out EasyOCR, now available via Github. The information page says:

Ready-to-use OCR with 40+ languages supported including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai.

Worth a look.
