Optical Character Recognition (OCR) extracts text from image
The OCR system attempts to make the text in the image clearer by ensuring the the lines of text are properly aligned smoothing out the pixels.
The characters are isolated. The pixels that make up each character are analyzed as well as the spaces between the characters. This facilitates the processing of each individual character as well as helping Optiic group characters together into words.
Characters are compared with common patterns to ultimately identify each individual character. Optiic uses contextual clues (like surrounding characters and words) to help determine more obscure or distorted characters.
