Tesseract OCR is an open source optical character recognition (OCR) engine used for recognizing text in images. It can be used to recognize numbers as well. Below is an example of how to use Tesseract OCR to recognize numbers.

# import the necessary packages
from PIL import Image
import pytesseract

# load the example image and convert it to grayscale
image = Image.open('example.png').convert('L')

# run Tesseract OCR on the image
text = pytesseract.image_to_string(image)

# print the recognized text

The output of the above code will be the recognized numbers in the image.

Code explanation

  1. Importing the necessary packages: from PIL import Image and import pytesseract.
  2. Loading the example image and converting it to grayscale: image = Image.open('example.png').convert('L')
