OCR for Equations using Tesseract for iOS
I'm developing an app for iOS that uses tesseract to convert a photographed image of an equation into text, so that it can then be solved. It will be something like what is in this tutorial: http://blog.ayoungprogrammer.com/2013/01/equation-ocr-part-1-using-contours-to.html
I know that this concept works on Windows using OpenCV and tesseract, but I would like to have this on iOS. I'm not very familiar with C++ and am trying to use OpenCV and tesseract on iOS.
There has already been a question on this: OCR for Equations and Formulae on the iOS Platform (Xcode) , but I know that it is indeed possible and not super ambitious, as it works on Windows.
I also believe that both OpenCV and Tesseract are supported on iOS, so there MUST be a way to get equation detection to work on iOS too.
Thanks in advance!
There are numerous ways of going about doing this, I've tinkered quite a bit myself on similar things and have gotten them to work for very specific conditions. As far as I can tell there is a tesseract that is made for equations and math in general. Tesseract for math and equations
If that's the route you want to go those links should get you up and running.
