Image-to-text Tesseract command line wrapper.

Project description

# PILtesseract Simple Tesseract wrapper for converting PIL Images to text.

Warning: PILtesseract is intended to only work with tesseract 3.03+, one awesome feature added in 3.03 is the ability to pipe images via stdin, PILtesseract utilizes this feature.

Here is a simple example:

>>> from PIL import Image
>>> from piltesseract import get_text_from_image
>>> image ='quickfox.png')
>>> get_text_from_image(image)
'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog'

See more advanced examples. See recipes.
