11.15 azcv ocr handwritting

20210316 Handwriting (English only) is recognisable with the r_ml_command(azcv,ocr) command. The output consists of the bounding box of the text recognised together with the text itself.

Here are a few examples of handwriting extraction as text from an image of handwritten text, as exposed through the MLHub package azcv.

This image contains sample hand writing from two gifted 9 year old year 4 students and users of mlhub: Ryley Nolan and Grace Patterson. (Used and accredited with permission.)
