OCR software for th Rpi

Sun Aug 19, 2012 12:50 am

Hi, I wonder if there is any package available to do OCR on stored images. I read about OCRopus and other called Tesserac, but I don't know if it any is available for the RPI.

thanks in advance

@AlvaroFG: Learn how to use the package management of the Linux you are using on the Raspi and look for yourself. The answer to your question is most probably yes.

Code: Select all

It's worth noting that OCR needs a load of space the RPi may be capable but it's going to struggle on even moderate documents.

Still worth looking at though. ;)
