  • Abstract

    Document text recognition uses a concept called OCR (optical character recognition),which is the recognition of printed or written text characters by a computer. This involves scanning a document containing text, and converting character by character to their digital form. Thus, it is defined as the process of digitizing a document image into its constituent characters. Equipment used to obtain clearer images for analysis are cameras and flatbed scanners. Even though it’s been out in the world since 1870, the OCR technology is yet to reach perfection. This demanding nature of Optical Character Recognition has made various researchers, industries and technology enthusiasts to divulge their attention to this field. In recent times one can notice a significant increase in the number of research organizations investing their time and effort in this field. In this research, the progress, different aspects and various issues revolving in this field have been summarized. The aim is to present a scrupulous overview of various proposals, advancements and discussions aimed at resolving various problems that arise in traditional OCR.
