Question: What is a good, short, simple algorithm for doing optical character recognition (OCR)?

Answer 1/2
OCR is a very difficult task. There is no short, simple algorithm for doing it. There are some freely available, pre-compiled programs for OCR which tend to be very large and contain many components and libraries. For instance, the complete "Lime OCR" package occupies 33 Mb on a hard drive.

The best free OCR software is "Lime OCR" available from Google (just search for "lime ocr").

If you prefer a command line OCR, get "Tesseract OCR" also from Google (Lime OCR is mostly just a GUI for Tesseract).

Finally, "Wocar" is an older free OCR. It's not as good as Lime OCR but is more light weight.
