Project Description

I am looking for a Matlab script to carry out the process described in this paper:

We will not be getting into any of the Android and phone process discussed in the later sections of the paper. Only the Matlab process and the corresponding Matlab scripts. The goal is to give the matlab script an input consisting of an image, and then receive an output in the form of txt.

This paper describes the process used and many if not all of the functions used. What they did was take a picture of a business card and extract the txt from it. They used Tesseract OCR reader and a matlab script to do the preprocessing.

Tesseract is an open source commercial quality OCR engine which can be download here:

The paper above describes the entire process and the correct way to implement it.

I am looking for someone to recreate the matlab code described. This includes being able to effectively use it with Tesseract. I would like to be able to take this matlab code and compile it into a standalone app to use outside of Matlab.
