Reading text from a camera for windows phone 8

Hello,

I have a question about GART toolkit.

Can I use GART toolkit to read texts from the camera. I want to build an app that reads a text from the camera.

Thank you and regards,

Hi,

I am afraid GART does not expose any API that would allow you to read text from the camera (I am assuming you need to do some kind of near real-time OCR).
I don't have any experience in mobile based OCR, but perhaps this will be a good point to start: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/hawaii/
