Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Automated Urdu Literature Analysis: This model can be utilized in literature study, where it would scan physical texts of Urdu literature, detect lines and then with a subsequent OCR, extract and digitize the data for further analysis.

  2. Urdu Manuscript Digitization: Historical Urdu manuscripts that need preservation can be scanned, with this model identifying lines and then an OCR tool converting those lines into digital formats to help create a digital library.

  3. Urdu Exam Paper Corrections: Schools and universities could utilize the Line-Detection-UrduOCR model to digitally assess handwritten or printed Urdu test papers, reducing the grading workload of teachers.

  4. Urdu Newspapers Digitization: To transform printed Urdu newspapers or magazines into digital versions, the CV model can detect lines to structure the information correctly in a digital format.

  5. Assisting Visually Impaired: The model can be used in an app that assists visually impaired persons by scanning Urdu texts, identifying lines, and subsequently converting them into audio using a text-to-speech solution.
