  • How would one go about recognizing a text (date) in an image?
    Try running https://github.com/JaidedAI/EasyOCR, which reads all the text from a given image. Then loop over the words read and see if it reads your date properly or if it splits it into multiple words. Even if it does this, you can easily find the year (you might need to do some postprocessing on what the ocr reads, i.e transform l to 1). The nice thing is that you get the bounding boxes of where the tect was read so you can use some sort of postprocessing on bbox locations and words read to find the month amd day (i.e. I read 25 at the same y index as the yesr but the x index is to the left, so its probably the day). Good luck :)

  • [D] Sudden drop in loss after hours of no improvement - is this a thing?
    Background: I have been working on a project to perform OCR on mobile screenshots in my current company. Due to many quality and deployment issues, I could not go with tesseract; then, I found EasyOCR, which seemed reasonable at initial testing; however, further investigation revealed that it does not generalize that well. See the issue I created here I created.

  • Best OCR for keras CNN trained handwritten character model?
    There are many possible approaches to OCR. You might want to take a look at the pipeline of EasyOCR at https://github.com/JaidedAI/EasyOCR.
  • Optimizing ImageGrab and pytesseract
    Also, if you’re reading sparse text (signs and the like instead of blocks of text in paragraphs) you might be interested in EasyOCR which is more intended for that kind of thing.
  • Is pytesseract the only option for OCR in python?

    There’s also Easy-OCR if you’re more after small bits of text from images (e.g. from signs), as opposed to tesseract which is generally better for images of blocks of text
  • What routine tasks do you automate with python programs?

    Also check out https://github.com/JaidedAI/EasyOCR for a slower but generally more precise OCR.
    I stopped using tesseract ages ago because it gave me these kinds of issues all the time, I can recommend https://github.com/JaidedAI/EasyOCR instead which is far less problematic.
  • Detecing numbers on screen
    First thing that would come to mind is to screenshot a region using pyautogui (https://pyautogui.readthedocs.io/en/latest/screenshot.html) then throw the result at EasyOCR (https://github.com/JaidedAI/EasyOCR)
  • Finding an dictionary key value in an image or on an screen.
    I’ve had good experiences with EasyOCR, the most well-known OCR library is tesseract though, which is developed by Google.
