How do I scan a photo and retrieve the text in it?

For a college project i need to build an App that recognises Text in a Photo an reads this text out loud. Can anybody tell me how to do it?


You need to OCR your photo. This can be done with extensions, or by using a base64 encoding extension and google docs.

Thanks for your answer.
I'm sorry, but i'm quite new here. Can you explain it to me step by step how this is dose.


Did you search for OCR extensions on the link, and follow those links?

I have lost my howto for the google docs solution, following a web reshuffle. I have all the pieces, but will have to find some time to put them all back together
