Convert Your Android into a Mobile Text Scanner-Optical Character Recognition(OCR)

Have you ever thought of this….

Grabbing a text from a photo or Newspaper and making it editable in your Android mobile device, without sitting down to type the whole article…

Well you might have or have not heard of that, but it’s possible….

And we call that OCR

Optical character recognition (optical character reader) (OCR) is the mechanical or electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text, whether from a scanned document, a photo of a document, a scene-photo (for example the text on signs and billboards in a landscape photo) or from subtitle text superimposed on an image (for example from a television broadcast).

It is widely used as a form of data entry from printed paper data records, whether passport documents, invoices, bank statements, computerized receipts, business cards, mail, printouts of static-data, or any suitable documentation. It is a common method of digitizing printed texts so that it can be electronically edited, searched, stored more compactly, displayed on-line, and used in machine processes such as cognitive computing, machine translation, (extracted) text-to-speech, key data and text mining. OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision.(Wikipediaorg, 2013)
