This paper represents an application study for using the Neural Networks and Machine Learning to recognize the English alphabet (A-Z) through the use of pattern recognition techniques in image processing and specifically to the application of Neural Networks and machine learning as a matrix two dimension. We used two techniques ANN and ML to compare their efficiencies and accuracies. We got 86. 92% for ANN and 91. 2% for ML.
