Hi,

I would like to create a simple GUI for tesseract-ocr using C#.

I'm not sure how to include the tesseract-ocr functionality into my
program.
I'm hoping that it would be as easy as having "using tesseract-ocr;"
or something similar at the top of my code.
I guess what I'm looking for is some soft of tesseract SDK that would
let me OCR just a portion of an image file.

I'm using MonoDevelop 1.0 on Ubuntu 8.10.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Waspinator

Take a look at VietOCR.NET, a C# GUI frontend integrating
Tessnet2 .NET wrapper for Tesseract 2.03 OCR engine.

Hi, this vietocr.net works fine.

how can i add another language support on your existing GUI?

I have made an entry in ISO639-3.xml file. and all tessract trained
files into tessract folder.

but in your code , languages are getting loaded through bin folder.

how can i automate that?

If you already have an entry in the ISO639-3.xml file and the relevant
language data files in the tessdata folder, then the option for the
language will show up in the OCR Language combobox when the program
starts.
