Programming 6: is it normal to have to try multiple times?

So, I just completed programming 6. However, I had to try it for about 15 times until my application got the whole thing right. I checked some of the solutions that didn't get accepted, and it seems like only one or two characters were wrong in each one of them. This seems right because even commercial OCR programs never get it 100% correctly, but I'd still like to know if such thing was needed on OCR programs of other people who completed the mission.

I had this exact problem except I had about 5% errors... So I never got them all right even with lots of attempts :cry:

Nice job!

Just finished mission 7, had the same problem there. The images I got didn't make too much sense (they were better than the original, at least) and it took me about 20 tries to get it. This is how one of my better-looking results was(delete it if you think it's a spoiler, it doesn't seem like one to me though):
