text extraction, OCR, translation, resource constraint


The paper presents the development of a human-machine interactive software application, especifically useful for text extraction and translation from images which are cap tured using mobile and digital devices with cameras. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in meeting the challenges behind the processing of such images will be highlighted with real images. In considering of the resource constraint nature of mobile devices, the proposed solution makes best possible choices to balance between recogni tion accuracy and processing speed.
