Hi Chris and team,

Another item I would like to hear is a discussion on OCR technology and especially any developments in OCR for both traditional (fan-ti-zi) and simplified (jian-ti-zi) Chinese; other Asian languages; and Arabic, because I would imagine Arabic OCR would be difficult with both the dots of the consonants and the diacritics for the vowels.
