chitrankan Hitherto, any written or printed document, if it is to be replicated digitally, needs to be photocopied or scanned. Such a replicated document cannot be altered in terms of the spellings, words, font style and size that the document contains. Also typing an entire document in order to replicate it, is extremely time consuming.

In order to overcome the above-mentioned issues C-DAC GIST has developed Chitrankan- the first OCR (Optical Character Recognition) system for Indian Languages.

The OCR process involves:

Chitrankan archives Indian Language content in electronic form through OCR. It enables the user to take a book, magazine or printed text in an Indian Language, feed it directly into an electronic computer file, and edit the file using a word processor. Once the data is in the form of electronic text it can be searched, sorted and indexed.

Chitrankan saves the user the effort of typing an entire document.
Chitrankan scans a document to screen by recognizing the text and other images as objects. These scanned images are flawless and can be stored or printed time and again.

Exceedingly user-friendly with features that can edit, move, resize or duplicate the scanned document, Chitrankan also provides a spell check facility.

The potential of Chitrankan is enormous as it enables users to harness the power of computers to access printed documents in Indian Languages.
