A Nastalique OCR developed for Urdu, which can eventually be extended for other languages of Pakistan, is able to provide the necessary requirements for effectively bringing the much needed culturally relevant indigenous content on line. It can quickly convert URDU Nastalique writing style content for online publishing, in editable and searchable format.
