I am doing a project on Urdu OCR. To the simplest, I first want to create my own true type font for Urdu. Then, I want to build a text file using my Own font and convert it into image. After that I want to apply my OCR algorithm for the resultant image using my own created ttf file as a template. Can anyone help me for how to create ttf files in linux for Urdu and how to use them to create text. Any open source available for this like font lab software.
