Google Text API: brings readability to Android

Google has launched a new Mobile Vision framework API that allows Android developers to incorporate OCR features in their applications.

The new Text API has recently appeared in the updated Google Play Services (9.2 version), which restores Mobile Vision, to make it easier for developers to add face detection features and barcode reader functionality to Android apps.Google

The new OCR text technology can recognize the text in any Latin-based language, covering most European languages, such as English, German and French as well as Turkish.

It detects any real-time text from the device, just like facial recognition and barcode readers. This feature is suitable for real-time applications and gives programmers similar features to those offered by the Google Translate app.

In addition, developers will be able to use it to organize photos containing text, or automate the input of credit card, receipt, and business card data.

It can also be used to incorporate translation features through Cloud and the Google Translate API. Alternatively, developers can use it to enable accessibility features through Android TextToSpeech.

The company also has an overview of how to integrate OCR functionality into Android applications.

On the other hand, Google downloads Mobile Vision to 9.0 as it indicates a serious bug and alerted developers to avoid adding new features until the problem is resolved.

The Mobile Vision API was released last year with APIs for Barcode and face recognition. In addition to facial recognition, applications could also identify the features in a person, such as eyes, nose and mouth, as well as "understand" if the faces are smiling or the eyes of the person are open.
