Re: [Gegl-developer] can i use gegl for my own OCR software?

From what I understand the core of your app needs to:

1) show the images scanned
2) allow the user to specify regions of fields to extract
3) extract the pixels of the specified regions
possibly 4) pre-process the regions before sending to OCR service

GEGL can handle 3 and 4. Associated libraries like gegl-gtk and gegl-qt can help with 1. Point 2 is out-of-scope for GEGL as a library.

If you have specific concerns, one might be able to provide more specific answers.

Hi Max,
As long as you respect the license, LGPLv3, you can use GEGL for any purpose.

Hi all!
I have developing OCR software - the goal is recognition of insurance blanks.
I have extracting  fields with text from image and send it to OCR public
service separately.
The meta-information about text fields i store in special database.
The main problem - the source images very diffirent, they have diff scale,
margins and so one, so, one meta-information is not valid for all images.
I need the tool for handle fields tuning. I see it as graphical editor with
source image and freely floating colored bars above it. Where i put colored
bar - there image text must be recognized.
Please see for understanding the idea:

Please help me to choose right direction.

Respect, Max
