I'm working on a project which involves detection of 2D surfaces and the text written on them using a webcam. The surface is being detected and I've been successful in enclosing it in a bounding box.
Now, for text detection I thought if I can crop the snapshot from the webcam based on the region within the rectangle (the bounding box), maybe I can run OCR (optical character recognition) on the cropped snapshot.
But I'm neither able to crop it or recognize the printed characters in any way. I tried running OCR and MSER method already but in vain. I want to avoid neural networks as much as possible as I'm not good at it. Is there a simple way to do it?
I'd be grateful if someone can help me as I'm running late on the project submission!
Is your question about MATLAB as the title suggests? This here is a Mathematica forum. What you want to achieve might be difficult in MATLAB but I am sure that it is quite do-able in Mathematica.
If you are using Mathematica you should post the image and perhaps the code that you already have.
