Q1.
I was trying to implement Optical Character Recognition.
I noticed that if the image has broad letters then the output is wrong, but thin letters are correctly recognized !!!
I searched through the internet and found that Thinning Algorithms are applied for that purpose, but I do not know how to start !!!!
Please help !!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q2. What should I do if I wish to prompt the user to enter the image to be recognized ??
Input() function was not working it this case !!!!
