The whiteboard or chalkboard is an essential tool in instructional settings - to learn better, students need a way to directly transport code from a non-text medium to a more workable environment.
What it does
Enables someone to take a picture of handwritten or printed text converts it directly to code or text on your favorite text editor on your computer.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
A beautiful spacing algorithm that recursively categorizes lines into indentation levels. Getting the app to talk to the main server to talk to the target computer. Scripting the client to display final result in a matter of seconds.
What we learned
What's next for Codify
It's feasibly to increase accuracy by using the Levenshtein distance between words. In addition, we can improve algorithms to work well with code. Finally, we can add image preprocessing (heighten image contrast, rotate accordingly) to make it more readable to the vision API.
