Image field with OCR
Please add image field with OCR support, just like the Barcode field but image and text should be stored in distinct fields (Barcode discards the image after processing and saves only the text).
The text field should ideally be editable, so that errors of the OCR engine can be corrected by the user.
There's a ready-to-use OCR library from Google, called "ML Kit" (https://firebase.google.com/docs/ml-kit/android/recognize-text) for Android, so the job basically narrows down to:
- Link that library to the Memento app.
- Feed the image into the OCR engine (as described in the link above), instead of sending it to the Barcode / QR-Code analyzer.
- Save the result of the OCR-engine in the text field.
Would be great to see such a valuable feature in a future release of Memento.
Thanks and good luck!
