Photo recognition?

Post by davidchang » Sun Dec 06, 2015 9:24 pm

I am wondering to what extent livecode has photo recognition capabilities. For example, if I wanted to build a sudoku solver, could I use the camera to capture the orientation of the numbers within the puzzle? If so, can someone point me in the right direction for either coding it myself or using externals for this type of function.

Hi David - I would say definitely yes (depending on photos) - see Michael McCreary's lovely lesson on image manipulation - and haircuts! ... processing

EDIT: just thought I had better qualify what I said - LiveCode doesn't have an OCR function so you would have to rely on making things work purely as images - there are excellent open source (and I think free) OCR libraries out there which LiveCode could make calls to, but none that I could find (when I was researching this a couple of years ago) that would work with mobile...
"...this is not the code you are looking for..."
