Element

public class Element extends Object

Public Methods

public Rect getBoundingBox ()

Axis-aligned bounding box containing the text. The bounding box may extend past the image boundary.

public List<? extends Text> getComponents ()

This class is the bottom of the tree, so this function always returns an empty list as it has no components.

public Point[] getCornerPoints ()

Four corner points in clockwise direction starting with top-left. Due to the possible perspective distortions, this is not necessarily a rectangle. Parts of the region could be outside of the image.

public String getLanguage ()

public String getValue ()

Retrieve the recognized text as a string. Returned in reading order for the language. For Latin, this is top to bottom within a TextBlock, and left-to-right within Lines.
