I tried using OCR to train ocr to recognise numbers from 1 to 50
The font is consolas. However zero (0) and two (2) are always conflicting.
zero(0) always reads as 2 and sometimes as forward slash when using them in the matlab.
this is the onedrive link to a copy of data. I have also added the code to it
Please what am i doing wrong?
Best regard,

To correctly identify the Zeros, you can change the value of the TextLayout parameter to ‘Block’ as OCR model is just trying to identify numbers which can be considered as a single block of text.
The documentation for OCR TextLayout parameter says: "If you get poor OCR results, try a different layout that matches the text in your image."
