4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for researchers in this field. August 2, 1998
It contains 31 chapters, begins from image processing methods, and OCR stages all the way to post processing stages. At the first glance I thought it was a collection of papers in some conference, but then I found that it not, although each chapter has the look and feel of a paper (Abstract, Introduction, ..., References) it seams that the editors has selected separate authors to write each chapter of the book as a stand alone. This book is more like a reference book than a page to page reading. It covers most part of the OCR system, and has dedicated special chapters for languages like Chinese, Japanese, Korean Hangul, and even Arabic Characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars OCR Reference September 1, 2008
Verified Purchase
This book covers most of the image processing steps that can be used to build an OCR system. It is a good refence if someone is new to OCR or is doing an OCR and is looking to improve the results.
