DOCOMO is a Japanese provider that offers a suite of API tools meant to streamline application development. The Character Recognition API scans an image and recognizes characters in English and Japanese. The API will return specific coordinates of individual characters. Handwritten or overly designed characters are not supported. The API can be implemented via REST and through the corresponding Android, iOS, & Java SDKs. DOCOMO also offers an API console to easily demo their many APIs.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
