|I can't follow steps in the documentation as here https://github.com/tesseract-ocr/tesseract/wiki/TrainingTesseract-4.00, I am using tesseract in real-time to recognize OCR printed text/ Optical Character Recognition.
But I wanted to extend it further to Handwritten character recognition.
currently, the new version of Tesseract doesn't recognize HCR. but it says we can do it after training dataset?
I know there are many other ways for the same, but I have to learn Neural-Networks for it, and I would need a faster machine.
my GitHub repo is "https://github.com/ganesh-deshmukh/cvkeyboard"|
I tried using tensorflow, but I can't pass image correctly so it gave wrong prediction, as this repo 'https://github.com/ganesh-deshmukh/Google-colab-hcr/blob/master/demoHCR.ipynb'
what would be a simple approach for same?
