Cool Work from Institute for Real-Time Computer Systems Germany
I wasn’t able to find any Swift projects that make use of the wonderful OpenCV (computer vision/image processing) and Tesseract (OCR) libraries, so I’m making one available for you to play with.
There is already official iOS support in OpenCV, however a lot has changed recently in iOS development and the sample projects haven’t yet caught up.
This code works with Swift, iOS 8.1, and XCode 6.1.
What the app does is let you select a photo from your library, or take a photo on the fly and the apply text recognition to the image.
