Android-Chinese-Menu-Recognition - A mobile application using Chinese OCR
The motivation of Android Chinese Menu Recognition application is to help tourists navigate in a foreign language environment. The application we developed enables the users to get text translate as ease as a button click. The camera captures the dishes name from the Chinese menu and returns the translated English food name as well as the corresponding picture of that dish. The system we developed includes automatic text detection, rotation(midtern), segmentation, OCR (optical character recognition), and text translation. Although the current version of our application is limited to translation from Chinese to English, it can be easily extended into a much wider range of language sets. 2)Install proper IDE, such as Eclipse Helios for java.
