So my plan is to create a real-time text recognition app.
To start out I am currently trying to make a simple on-device (not via an cloud API) OCR app which uses a photo taken from the CameraView ,extracts text and then displays it on the screen. I looked into possible solutions a lot and came to the conclusion that Tesseract might be the best choice. Now since I am coming from the web dev world I have no expertise in working with foreign code - ObjC I did not even know where to start. It feels like I would need to spend much much more time in learning ObjC. and Uno in order to solve a very rare issue. Being optimistic I believe there has to be a better and efficient way to do this and thats why I am asking you for help.
I found out that tesseract actually also provides a JS version: https://github.com/naptha/tesseract.js#tesseractjs
The problem is that I am not really sure about how to implement npm packages in fuse and if its even gonna work anyway since it probably strongly depends on node.js core features…
Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks
