Hi

 

take a look at this video... it's all worth watching but at about 22 minutes in, you'll find information on OCR:

 

http://active.mediasite.com/mediasite/Play/7fa3010c-37a3-45ad-a3fd-6d58f032d274

 

OpenCV is mentioned at about 27 minutes.

 

Tessaract gets a mention and the blog post about compiling it for BlackBerry 10 is here:

Hope this helps

 

Martin

Re: Image processing and OCR possibility on Blackberry 10 Smartphone

I can't access the video. It asks to login and the site doesn't have a register form. (That I can find)

 

Do you have another source?

Seems that someone has develoeped an OCR for BB 10. Maybe you can ask some useful information from him/her.

Re: Image processing and OCR possibility on Blackberry 10 Smartphone

Have you find an engine for your OCR application?

I'm not expert in this aspect, but I've used Tesseract OCR Engine for my application.

This engine is an open source to use, so suggest you goolge it to see whether it is available for you!
