A fork of Tesseract Tools for Android (tesseract-android-tools) that adds some additional functions. Tesseract Tools for Android is a set of Android APIs and build files for the Tesseract OCR and Leptonica image processing libraries.
This project works with Tesseract pre-release v3.04 and Leptonica v1.72. The required source code for Tesseract and
Leptonica is included within the
tess-two subdirectory contains tools for compiling the Tesseract and Leptonica
libraries for use on the Android platform. It contains an Android library project
that provides a Java API for accessing natively-compiled Tesseract and Leptonica APIs.
eyes-two subdirectory contains a second, separate library project with additional image
processing code copied from the eyes-free project. It includes native functions for text detection, blur detection, optical flow
detection, and thresholding. Building eyes-two is not necessary for using the Tesseract or Leptonica APIs.
tess-two-test subdirectory contains Android JUnit tests.
- Android 2.2 or higher
- A v3.02 trained data file for a language. Data files must be extracted to a subdirectory named
Release points are tagged with version numbers. A change to the major version number indicates an API change making that version incompatible with previous versions.
This project is set up to build on Android SDK Tools r22.3+ and Android NDK r10d+. The build works on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows 7/8. See Issues for reported build issues.
On 64-bit Ubuntu, you may need to install the
ia32-libs 32-bit compatibility library.
To build the latest tess-two code, run the following commands in the terminal:
git clone git://github.com/rmtheis/tess-two tess cd tess cd tess-two ndk-build android update project --path . ant release
To build eyes-two, additionally run the following:
cd .. cd eyes-two ndk-build android update project --path . ant release
After building, the tess-two and eyes-two projects can be imported into Eclipse using File->Import->Existing Projects into Workspace.
While this project does not require Maven (and this project has not yet been registered in a Maven central repository), it can be integrated into a local Maven repository for convenience.
Pull requests are always welcome. Please open a new issue if you find a bug.
