I was going through some old links which I had saved while developing Fluensee to later follow up on which improved OCR accuracy and thought it would be useful for all of us to have a look at it.
I feel this link is also useful for publishing platform as we go into the digital world, we would be converting a lot of text on paper to digital format by scanning and then running OCR software on it. The strategies and helpful ways as enumerated in the link would help in improving OCR accuracy, which in turn would reduce the manu...
We all might have heard about OpenID and it's future as an identity manager.
To all of you who are not aware of OpenID, here is a small refresher.
