Can we build language-independent OCR using LSTM networks?


Language models or recognition dictionaries are usually considered an essential step in OCR. However, using a language model complicates training of OCR systems, and it also narrows the range of texts that an OCR system can be used with. Recent results have shown that Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) based OCR yields low error rates even without language… (More)
