I went to myfonts.com/WhatTheFont to get the font from a text to train tesseract.
I realized that the font recognizer did actually better OCR than when I used tesseract on the same image.
So any idea how could I find out what OCR tool or library they're using?
They do have a forum but it's not a support forum, it's more like a font marketplace.
