How KanjiTomo works?This page contains a description of KanjiTomo's OCR algorithm.
|The original image||Image is sharpened||Gray pixels are removed|
|Touching pixels are combined into areas||Each area represents a fragment of character||Fragments are grouped into characters|
|Target character is aligned with reference characters.|
This way all common Japanese characters can be compared against each target character. Various transformations (such as stretching and offset)
are also done to find best possible alignment.
