Abstract

The survey of the optical character reader for Urdu like cursive languages is based on the various techniques and studies performed on designing and implementation of the optical character reader. As, Urdu language has Nastaliq font so different approaches were applied on this font so as to get the desired result. Survey is being performed on all the techniques whether segmentation based, on-line or off-line etc, then all the data gathered is represented in a tabular manner so as to make it an ease to understand or to have an idea of the concept by visualizing the table at once. Non existence of the Urdu OCR has limited the concept a digital Urdu library and this nonexistence leads a pathway for immense research in this field.
