TEXT RECOGNITION APPLICATIONS FOR MOBILE DEVICES

Ravneet Kaur

Abstract


A few decades ago, research in the field of Character Recognition was limited to document images acquired with flatbed desktop scanners. The usability of such systems is limited as they are not portable because of large size of the scanners and takes a lot of time to scan an image.  But, with the advancement of processing speed, internal memory and built-in digital cameras of hand-held mobile devices, a new trend of research has emerged into picture. We may think of running OCR applications on such devices for having real time imaging results. This Paper summarise some commercially available applications to recognise text from documents. Most of the available systems work for European scripts which are based on Roman alphabets.

KEYWORDS: Mobile OCR, OCR Applications, Character Recognition.
