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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
