A Matlab Project in Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Introduction: What is OCR?
The goal of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is to classify optical patterns (often contained in a digital image) corresponding to alphanumeric or other characters.

The process of OCR involves several steps including segmentation, feature extraction, and classification. Each of these steps is a field unto itself, and is described briefly here in the context of a Matlab implementation of OCR.

A few examples of OCR applications are listed here. The most common for use OCR is the first item; people often wish to convert text documents to some sort of digitalĀ  representation.
1. People wish to scan in a document and have the text of that document available in a word processor.
2. Recognizing license plate numbers
3. Post Office needs to recognize zip-codes
