Toolkit for advanced OCR of poor quality documents

Project description


Running stuff

Scripts (as well as tests) assume that it is possible to import pero_ocr and its components.

For the current shell session, this can be achieved by setting PYTHONPATH up:

export PYTHONPATH=/path/to/the/repo:$PYTHONPATH

As a more permanent solution, a very simplistic is prepared:

python develop

Beware that the does not promise to bring all the required stuff, e.g. setting CUDA up is up to you.

Pero can be later removed from your Python distribution by running:

python develop --uninstall

Available models

General layout analysis (printed and handwritten) with european printed OCR specialized to czech newspapers can be downloaded here.


Working changes are expected to happen on develop branch, so if you plan to contribute, you better check it out right during cloning:

git clone -b develop pero-ocr


Currently, only unittests are provided with the code. Some of the code. So simply run your preferred test runner, e.g.:

~/pero-ocr $ green
