Re: Image processing

Hi,

 

I'm not sure it's a client task.

I think it would be much more efficient to take the image, send it to a server for the processing and display the result (or make the call) to the user.

Re: Image processing

I agree with maadani, I would send the image to a Server and get the Server to extract what it can.

 

There are, as far as I am aware, no standard BB OCR type scanning facilities.  So you will have to look for some open source J2ME library that someone might have written, or write one yourself. 

 

You could have a look at xing, which an open source Java library fo detecting and processing bar codes.  This might provide the basis of sort of OCR processing on the BlackBerry.
