WeOCR is a platform for Web-enabled OCR (Optical Character Reader/Recognition) systems.
WeOCR is a platform for Web-enabled OCR (Optical Character Reader/Recognition) systems that enables people to use character recognition over networks.
A WeOCR server receives document images from users, recognize texts in the images, and return recognition results to the users.
WeOCR does not have its own character recognition engine. Instead, it is intended to accommodate various character recognition engines. WeOCR provides a simplified user interface so that more people can benefit from OCR easily.
- Receive a document image from each client computer, pass the image to the back-end OCR engine, generate HTML data from the result data, and send the data back to the client.
- Uncompress the incoming image file if required.
- Limit the size of the input data to protect the server from huge data.
- Examine the integrity of image file headers.
- Convert the input image into a common image format (PNM).
- Limit the number of jobs to prevent the server from processing too many documents at once and to maintain acceptable server response.
- Terminate the OCR engine after a specified time has passed, if the engine continues running (in vain) due to unexpected input data or bugs in the engine.
- Support server search function using spec files in XML.

My Interest with this project: Trying to port it for Kannada OCR Project. A demo link has been made available at http://knocr.techfiz.net . (PS: It is still under deployment. Keep watching the link for its completion)
The book provides an introduction to the inspiring world of Free Software, covering its main concepts, some of the most successful free software projects, the specifics of their development and the legal basis that free software licenses provide for the protection of users’ freedoms. It also contains a large directory of glossary, bibliography and links to help the reader explore deeper into this field. While this book provides an excellent introduction to Free Software, it is also an illustrative example of how the SELF Platform can be used.

The Free Software Community Celebrates the Gnu Birthday troughout the world and Its also called as Software Freedom Day. I just sent out Kannada transcript of Stephen Fry’s Video to help people understand “What is Free Software?” and “How to get Involved with it?” Waiting for that to be uploaded. Once again “Happy Birthday Gnu!” You’re Growing Old (huh! 25 years), yet Stronger and Stronger!
