Hello guys!

Does anyone knows is there a application with which we can scan business cards and make automatically contact in Contacts menu?

I used to use Abbyy BusinessCard Reader with my E90 and it works like a charm. Also in SonyEricsson P990 it was preinstalled very nice scanner for same application.

So, is there such application for Maemo 5 /N900?

Regards.

Have you guys already written to abby for request? Might take awhile but maybe worth of trying.

As simple as it sounds!

Optical character recognition and business card reader for N900;
Why wait until you get home to digitize your documents when you can do it on the go?
Why bother typing the names and details of your associates when a simple photo can do all the work?

Brainstorm link: http://maemo.org/community/brainstor.../ocr_for_n900/

Please read this thread from the beginning as it contains the coding and the most relevant parts of the project.

Thanks

There already is a brainstorm for that and it's already under consideration:
http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/view/ocr_for_n900

Please remove your brainstorm and cast your vote there.

Thanks

http://maemo.org/community/brainstor...rd_recognizer/ resolved as duplicate, thanks!

About Solution #1: Cuneiform or Tesseract? - can you please file 2 separate solutions, one for each port? Links to the original projects would be useful. Also helpful if you could explain in which toolkits are they based to see how feasible the porting would be.

Sorry, I haven't gone through the whole thread but I want to make sure you are aware of OCRFeeder running in Fremantle
