Hi,

Has anyone found a way to make use OCR with Android Processing? I would like to extract text content from images (from camera or from Gallery) for further processing Text-To-Speech, translation, etc.

I tried using some of the OCR libraries discussed on various Android forums, but I found the process complicated. It would be interesting to see if anyone is working or has produced a solution for Android Processing.

I would settled for a WebAPI solution, but I have not find any free ones.

Any chance the Ketai team is working on this?

btw: Fully enjoying using Ketai right now. It’s a great library.

Thanks,

BT

Thanks Bukasa,

we are not working on OCR. However, we are directing our attention (and limited time resources) towards OpenCV for Android. One step in this direction.

Best, Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for following up. Looking forward to the next version of the Ketai library.
