tess-two

A fork of Tesseract Tools for Android (tesseract-android-tools) that adds some additional functions. Tesseract Tools for Android is a set of Android APIs and build files for the Tesseract OCR and Leptonica image processing libraries.

This project works with:

  • Tesseract 3.05
  • Leptonica 1.74.1
  • libjpeg 9b
  • libpng 1.6.25

The source code for these dependencies is included within the

tess-two/jni
folder.

The

tess-two
module contains tools for compiling the Tesseract and Leptonica libraries for use on the Android platform. It provides a Java API for accessing natively-compiled Tesseract and Leptonica APIs.

The

eyes-two
module contains additional image processing code copied from the eyes-free project. It includes native functions for text detection, blur detection, optical flow detection, and thresholding. Eyes-two is not needed for using the Tesseract or Leptonica APIs.

The

tess-two-test
module contains instrumented unit tests for tess-two.

Pre-requisites

  • Android 2.3 or higher
  • A v3.04 trained data file for a language. Data files must be copied to the Android device in a subdirectory named
    tessdata
    .

Usage

To use tess-two from your app, edit your app module's

build.gradle
file to add tess-two as an external dependency:
dependencies {
    implementation 'com.rmtheis:tess-two:9.1.0'
}

Javadoc is available.

Building

If you want to modify the tess-two code, or you want to use the eyes-two module, you may build the project yourself locally. See BUILDING.md.
