An experimental app for Android that performs optical character recognition (OCR) on images captured using the device camera.
Runs the Tesseract 3.02 OCR engine using a fork of Tesseract Tools for Android.
Most of the code making up the core structure of this project has been adapted from the ZXing Barcode Scanner. Along with Tesseract-OCR and Tesseract Tools for Android (tesseract-android-tools), several open source projects have been used in this project, including leptonica, google-api-translate-java, microsoft-translator-java-api, and jtar.
- Installation of tess-two as a library project, to act as the OCR engine.
- A Windows Azure Marketplace Client ID and Client Secret (for translation) - Documentation
- A Google Translate API key (for translation) - Documentation
