Advanced OCR that can read different text?

Hi,
Im trying to make an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program, that would be able to read text from an image. Except, that the text could be in different fonts, different styles, slanted, etc. Ive read about neural networks being capable of this. Would this be the right way or doing it? Are there any good examples/tutorials on this subject?
