I am trying to implement a "Digit Recognition OCR" in OpenCV-Python (cv2). It is just for learning purposes. I would like to learn both KNearest and SVM features in OpenCV.
I have 100 samples (i.e. images) of each digit. I would like to train with them.
There is a sample letter_recog.py that comes with OpenCV sample. But I still couldn't figure out on how to use it. I don't understand what are the samples, responses etc. Also, it loads a txt file at first, which I didn't understand first.
Later on searching a little bit, I could find a letter_recognition.data in cpp samples. I used it and made a code for cv2.KNearest in the model of letter_recog.py (just for testing):
