I just wanted to do it.
What it does
Takes a picture of japanese text and then translates it.
How I built it
I built it in Java, and developed a OCR engine that can work the program.
Challenges I ran into
Many challenges, I began the project not knowing anything about OCR and having minimal information of image modification.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I did it, well unfortunatley the recognition program is not completely functioning yet, but the rest of the program works..
What I learned
Alot about OCR.
What's next for Japanese OCR
create a GUI, improve the recognition program, improve the character recolonization program.
