Printed Character Recognition

A system which can convert Myanmar Portable document format to Machine Editable Word Document with format is developed by using MICR. The recognition rates and formatting rates of MICR are very high in this application. The system can recognize typewritten words and then the output will be a formatted file.

Myanmar printed characters are mostly used in the common Myanmar Application Forms. The objective is to develop an optical character recognition for the Myanmar printed characters and words and the translation of Myanmar printed text for many other people (who don’t understand the Myanmar language) to understand Myanmar words. Myanmar character recognition algorithm is extended from the Hopfield Neural Network method.
