Text.Element

public static class Text.Element extends Object

Public Methods

public Rect getBoundingBox ()

Returns the axis-aligned bounding rectangle of the detected text. If nothing found, it returns null.

public Point[] getCornerPoints ()

Gets the 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. If nothing found, it returns null.

public String getRecognizedLanguage ()

Gets prevailing language in the text, if any. The format is in BCP47 (e.g. "en" or "sr-Latn-BA") or "und" if the language could not be determined.

public String getText ()

Gets the recognized text in the Text.Element.

The recognized text is in reading order for the language. For Latin, it is left-to-right.

Returns an empty string if nothing is found.
