Hello geeks ,

I want to develop OCR reading in Android especially for reading bills.....simple names and amount (digits).

Please suggest approach.

Thanks and Regards

Check if the Tesseract library has been ported to Android; if not, send the image to be OCR-ed to a server where you can use it to do that.
