In Pune, around this time lot of colleges have their
where they show projects, last year and couple of years before I had
seen students who had made nice OCR's which could work with indic
languages but obviously required lot of polish and getting into the
whole 'code maintainance' thing. The students motivation for that had
been to do as a project and not getting things 'maintained' which is
unglamorous grunt work. Also documentation is something that would
need to be looked at and fine-tuned.
Indic OCR, at least the bits that are available under an appropriate
FOSS license, have an accuracy of around 80%. Considering the volume
and fragility of what you will OCR, that's remarkably low.
