OCR program implemented as filter
GNU Ocrad is an OCR Optical Character Recognition program implemented as a filter and based on a feature extraction method. It reads a bitmap image in pbm format and outputs text in ISO-8859-1 Latin-1 charset. Also includes a layout analyser able to separate the columns or blocks of text normally found on printed pages. It can be used as a stand-alone console application, or as a backend to other programs.
