Optical Character Recognition for Handwritten Cursive English characters

  title={Optical Character Recognition for Handwritten Cursive English characters},
  author={Aparna and Prof. I. Muthumani},
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the technique which enables a machine to automatically recognize the characters or scripts written in the users’ language. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) has become one of the most successful applications of technology in the field of pattern recognition and artificial intelligence. In this project a scanned image is translated into machine editable text by means of using Optical Character Recognition. Here a hand written English cursive word is…
