Tesseract OCR Library – Successfully compiled in Window :)

with 91 comments

Today, I got the project to make OCR software. After googling, I reach on the conclusion to use Tesseract library. This library is opensource and available in both Windows and Linux. This library is provided with Visual Studio project. I have compiled it with the .NET and also Visual Studio 6.0. This creates tesseract.exe. Which is successfully run on my pc. It converts the tiff image into the text. Though not perfect but we can use it in our project.

If anybody wants the instruction please mail me or post your queries and question here.
