How to Read Data Through Phone via Android App

By Damosull ·

I am trying to create an Android mobile app that reads text using the camera.

I have seen examples of this where people scan their bank card, & their credit card number, name, etc. are read through the camera & stored in text fields.

I have done some research, and apparently the OCR technology does something similar, but I haven't managed to find anything yet.

Does anybody know of any good technologies, tutorials, etc. that could be used to accomplish this?

Thanks a lot for any help in advance,

That is the brilliant idea. But this complicated issue requires the skills and the experience dealing with the OCR technology and peculiarities of Android app development.
All peculiarities about reading content via mobile phone and Android app will be discussed later.
