I run a small guild in an on-line MMO (City of Heroes). As part of
this I maintain a roster of our membership and their level and various
in-game statistics. Unfortunately I can't get the data from the MMO
directly. I have been taking screenshots of the in-game roster and
then transcribing it into comma-delimited format for parsing by a
This works fine but some of our partner guilds are interested in my
roster. So I was thinking I could try some limited OCR. In this case
the font and image size will be known constants. I would then try to
parse the screenshots directly.
Does anyone know of any libraries or toolkits I can use with this? Or
should I just dig up some OCR texts and make a cheater version, quick,
dirty and a wee bit fragile.
I will be using PIL to read the images and convert to bmps/memory
images. I just am curious where I can did up some OCR related data.
