Hello all,
I' m Hendy. I'm newbie in neural networks I was trying to develop some ocr project and implement backpropagation method. I have been already sets the train function, but I still confusing about using the output result. How can I use the output to recognize some character? Do I need to make comparison to the binary of some character? Here is the following steps that I have been do:
1. Converting text input to image
2. Normalization character image size into 10x12 matrix
3. using backpropagation.
4. get the weight and saved it.
1. Preprocessing input image(scanned text document)
2. Character image segmentation
3. Character image size normalization without thinning the character(I don't use it)
4. Convert the segmented and normalized character image into binary and set it into array (10x12 matrix).
5. backpropagation (forward propagation)
6. get the output

I have no idea to use the output to recognizing character?
Sorry about my bad english :).

Thanks everybody!

Your question is clear enough, but I don't think it's suitable for this forum. The problem is not so simple and requires a lot of learning and work. One question cannot get you into it.

Ok. Thank you.

Well I know you can make bitmaps of font characters, and then search for them inside images. Search for them rotated, and different sizes. But as to the best way to go about all of this I have no idea. You'd probably have to use glyphs, some way to load a ton of onts/characters, and search for them onscreen at a fast rate.
