  European languages Korean Chinese & Japanese
Library (RAM), MB From 5 to 7* From 5 to 7* From 5 to 7*
Patterns (RAM or ROM)*, MB 1.64 From 1.37 to 5.23 11.5
Keywords (RAM or ROM)*, MB 1.56 0.113 0.869
Dictionaries (RAM or ROM)*, MB 14.4 N\A N\A

* Exact memory requirements vary depending on the operating system and specific recognition tasks (e.g., multilingual recognition requires more memory).

The library itself is almost always placed in RAM (some platforms allow direct operation from the storage memory).

Patterns, keywords, and dictionaries are to be placed in ROM though some (rare) platforms may require loading them to RAM. European patterns should always be included, while other patterns — depend on the required languages. Dictionaries are optional components and could be excluded, but in this case recognition quality will be decreased. Keywords are necessary only for business card recognition.
