  1. Hi Hammad!

    I’m Shasha and I will like to ask if you could show a tutorial on how to create a OCR software as I’ve tried to find the solution in the search engine but failed to get the type of programs that can be used to develop an OCR program. Looking forward for your reply. Sorry for the inconvenience.
