A while back I was creating an application that had a requirement to let the user take a picture/snap of a GRN (goods receipt note) and present the user with a pre-filled form to confirm that OCR readings before submitting and saving to database. For this, I used a paid OCR service (email me if you want to know the name).
1. Take picture
2. Convert image to text
3. Fill form with text (this one was tricky and we had an SOP to mark items that need to be captured with “##” by the user before taking the snap)
4. User to edit the fields if text presented has errors
5. Save details to database on submission
In this post I will talk about the details of Step2:
Below here is a code snippet that uses free OCR service from ocrwebservice.com to convert an image into text.
I hope this helps.
