Text recognition plug in or feature for Wikitude in Unity


I am working with Wikitude in Unity 2017.3.0f3.Personal. 

Is there any text recognition plug in or feature that could work for this? 

Would be very interesting to try! 

Can of course update Unity if that is necessary. 

Best Regards

Hi Simon,

The Wikitude SDK doesn't provide any OCR functionality out of the box. You can, however, use third-party OCR software with our SDK by using our Plugins feature.



Thank you very much for your support :)

As far as I can tell I am already working within the Wikitude PlugIns API,  

as I am working with Wikitude in Unity. 

Is this correct? 

If so, I guess the next step is finding a suitable 3rd party plugin to include 

number scanning functionality in Wikitude with Unity. 

In the link you included with your reply I read about the Anyline OCR software ,

which seems to do what I am looking for. 

Right now I am experimenting for fun and learning with AR , 

and I am a long way from making apps professionally. 

Do you think it could be possible to obtain a trial to test the OCR-software? 

Best Regards
