This paper provides and discusses an overview about the offline Arabic Optical Character Recognition (AOCR) system. It also provides and discuses the challenges that must be considered in designing or choosing a cretin method for the AOCR system. Recognition of Arabic characters is more difficult than Latin or Chinese language .The typical AOCR system consists of five components: image acquisition, preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction and classification (recognition). Each of those… Expand
