megreen831 2 Posted January 13, 2016 Share Posted January 13, 2016 Evernote + OCR + Lottery Tickets <> Lottery Ticket Scanner With the Powerball at $1.5B, we all kicked in for lottery tickets. I've got 500 of them and thought about a creative way to check them for winning numbers.... Take pics and put them in Evernote. It should work. Each slip of paper contains 10 lottery ticket number sets. Each number set on the ticket is space delimited, so a search for 5 numbers like 12 32 44 55 56 should result in yellow highlights across all the tickets where each of those "words" appear. But it doesn't work. Even though the pics are in great focus, the search misses some numbers and catches some extras. What's up with that? It really highlighted a flaw in the OCR logic.
