OCR Resources

The information here is provided as background to our OCR engine.

Professor Yann LeCun, from New York University, has provided a modified sample of the NIST database of hand-written characters. We found this useful when developing our character recognition engine.

Note that the data in the MNIST database is in a special format (as explained in Yann LeCun's page). To convert this to suitable Windows bitmaps we wrote a little tool which you can download.

MNIST to BMP Converter 420KB executable for Windows 98/2000/XP
