I'm looking to process a bunch of scanned response postcards that have handwritten contact information on them (ie Name, Address, Phone, Email, etc).
I'm curious if there is a viable open-source library or piece of software to do this (ideally Java or R). In looking around a lot of the information is from 2009 or early and isn't very encouraging.
The language is English.
EDIT: I've looked at the OCRopus page but the latest version is from May 2009. Anyone have any experience with this or is there a more recent version?
