Kannada Unicode technologies
We use technology solutions developed at MILE Lab, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru to create editable Unicode text using the Kannada OCR (optical character recognition) technology. A set of technology solutions for Kannada including optical character recognition, Kannada Unicode text to Braille, Kannada speech synthesis has been developed by the team lead by Prof AG Ramakrishnan. The lab shares the technology free of cost with schools and organisations working for the education of visually challenged students. Organisations, schools or teachers interested in accessing these technology solutions are requested to print the request form below on your organisation letter head and despatch it to Indian Institute of Science for processing.
