Urdu OCR

The RCAI team deployed an online portal for Urdu OCR that is user friendly. You can upload images that consist of Urdu text in different fonts. Extract the Urdu literature from a document image and to identify their reading format in order to convert the image into searchable electronic representation. System recognizing both handwritten and printed urdu (some list of fonts depending on trained dataset). Got high accuracy of about 90% for some specific fonts. With the help of Urdu OCR, we can promote the Urdu language not only in Asia but around the globe. A further improvement could be to add a listening feature that would promote quality education as the Urdu language is quickly being forgotten in Pakistan. It is an innovation in the software industry as it can be developed further for different languages and features. RCAI is looking for collaborations for this project to expand its functionalities further.
