I would like to use tesseract ocr for Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS applications. I found the binding for iOS (<a href="https://github.com/jherby2k/Xamarin-Tesseract-OCR-iOS-Unified" rel="nofollow">https://github.com/jherby2k/Xamarin-Tesseract-OCR-iOS-Unified</a>).
Is there an equivalent for Android ?Answer1:
Yes, there is Tesseract for Android implementation. You can find it <a href="https://github.com/rmtheis/tess-two" rel="nofollow">here</a>. But you'll have to build it and create android bindings by yourself.
I created Xamarin Android binding based on this project. You can find it <a href="https://github.com/halkar/tess-two-xamarin-android-binding" rel="nofollow">here</a>. There is a test project, just don't forget that you will need Tesseract testdata to be copied on the device.
