Even though I got up later today (don’t really understand why the damn time should change… would we die if there was a fix hour for summer/winter time?) but wanted to do a bit of hacking in
So, I did some tiny enhancements that you can check out by updating your SVN repo.
Here you got a couple of screenshots cause everybody loves them:
Everybody loves screencasts, they’re the new screenshots for say.
Here’s a video of
OCRFeeder in action so you see what it can do for you.
OCRFeeder from Joaquim Rocha on Vimeo.
Finally, the first initial commit to a public SVN of my new project —
OCRFeeder is an Optical Character Recognition and Document Analysis and Recognition program for GNU/Linux.
It features a complete graphical user interface in GTK but can also be used from the command line for automation purposes.
It is written in Python and was developed as the project for my
Master’s Thesis in Computer Science Engineering.
So go on and checkout the project’s source:
svn checkout http://ocrfeeder.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ ocrfeeder-read-only
Note this is only an SVN release yet so I get some feedback and the traditional first bug reports.
You can also be part of this project as a developer or a translator, just drop me an email.
I hope this is a good step on the evolution of OCR technologies in GNU/Linux system.
Soon I’ll be adding here a list of features you can find as well as a screencast.
