What APIs are use in/for the Tablet PC (by Microsoft)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    sorry for my bad English and straight forwarding.

    i got a question about OCR (optical character recognition)/handwriting recognition.

    idea:

    develop a application (something like Paint) which can recognize letter of alphabets (A to Z) drawn in the paint canvas by using the kinect.

    i found that the Tablet PC by Microsoft is kind a similar to the idea above.

    now the problem is...i'm not sure what APIs have to use for the handwriting recognition.

    by the way, i'm using these to build the application:

    1.Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

    2.C# (programming language)

    so guys...any idea?

    i need guidance here.

    thanks in advance!

    cheers

  • The Kinect SDK does not have OCR support.

    the text recognition you’re looking for is not inherent to the Kinect SDK.

    Your almost asking for gesture recognition of the letters which we have not supported in any direct means at this time.
