    Question OCR help Needed

    HI ALL,

    I need an OCR engine for s60.

    I found that there is already an OCR engine in s60. But it is not working properly.
    Now to proceed i need to write an OCR engine Code.

    Can anyone Please guide me how to write an OCR engine ?

    I have found an Open source OCR engine name tesss...
    But his code is quite big and i don't know hw to port it on symbian.

    Have smeone successfully ported any open source OCR engine?
    If yes can he pleas help me in this regard ?

    Thanks

    hi!

    I believe that OCR is built in for some S60 phones
    like the Nokia N82 (S60 3rd Edition, FP2).
    See this product: http://www.cnet.com.au/tag/n82-ocr-optical.htm
    The corresponding library is "ocrsrv.lib".

    cheers!

    It seems that the feature is available only on phones sold in the APAC region.

    Thanks guys for ur attention towards my query. But i am afraid wheather u guys have read my original post carefully.
    I already know abt that inbuild ocr engine in nokia is a dumb thing & actually not working,and also seen that wiki post and test ocr exp on device it is really not working.


    also am wondering why such dumb things are also mentioned in higher sdks.... or why such useful apis are not working on device!!!!!

    So please come to my exact query..


    1- I want to now make a ocr of my own (Please let me know if there is any other method)

    2- I have already tried to port tesseract-2.01 code to symbian. But I am facing a lot of pbs while porting such a big code (atlest for mobile) given at the following link
    http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-o...ar.gz&can=2&q=

    Also I have gone throgh this link

    http://www.abbyy.com/finereader_engi...FQwcegodB3q5Qw

    So I want to know IS there any 3rd party open ocr engine source for s60 or for mobile platform.

    Anyone already ported sucessfully this code to symbian ??

    Please respond to my post....

    Thanks

    What do you expect from a Symbian C++ board then?
    "You Are Here: Home > Community > Discussion Boards > Development Platforms > Symbian C++ > General Symbian C++ > OCR help Needed"
    You can find the Mobile Java boards in "Development Platforms"
