hi all, i'm going to develop a mobile phone application
the application uses the mobile camera to extract text from captured images and translate,pronounce and it will be improved to be usedwith blinds
any way
what i need is to know what the programming language may be best for such app.
providing that i'm gonna use a nokia phone (not iphone because of expenses)
i think itwould be better to use N95.

i think this application need a lite language and also powerful, because image processing is heavy...
any way
i need opinions.

Reading your question you did not write this program yet. I would advise to simply write this as a pc application in any language you prefer. To write such functionality it's important to work in an environment as comfortable as possible. When you encounter a problem it would otherwise be hard to find out if it's the language, device or just a coding error. It should first be about coding it right and getting it to work. You can then also determine how much processing power you'll need and what language and technique would fit best. Test your idea on the surface before diving into the deep...

you're right, but it's a graduation project and no innovation behind producing such app to work on pc, also a similar app is already made and widely used on iphones, and i wanted to make it on nokia phone and make it recognize arabic text as an advanced stage.....

Of course such functionality will have more use on a mobile device but initial coding and testing of your implementation is easier to do as pc application. You could for example write a first version in java on your pc and later port (yes, even java needs to be ported) for the java runtime for nokia. Take a look, also the documentation tab![^]

The advantage is that the language itself is pretty generic for both platforms and also the nokia runtime has api's for all kind of advanced features that will make your life easier and can ensure your application performance.

Well, I think java really the best way to go and the link above is an excellent start. There are several examples and courses that can get you on your way quickly and help you out when needed.

Good luck!
