OCR in VB2008

Hi all,

I am looking to include some basic OCR functionality in my latest project.  What i want to do is using a camcorder to take a picture of a sequence of numbers and convert this to an integer value in vb2008. Im only working with the numbers 0-9 and want a low cost solution.  Seen some interesting script and theory.  

My current thinking is that its all about recognizing patterns across a grid, however not sure where to start.  If anyone can give be a few pointers be much appreciated.
