The algorithm works by converting color images to grayscale then comparing scaled matricies of detected letters to the known, scaled, grayscale matricies of each letter. Letters are detected using a simple edge detecting algorithm. This presents issues when using non-monospace fonts. Letters that touch each other are considered to be the same letter. This is a known issue with this particular letter detection algorithm.
