OCR Android application that is using Tesseract

I'm trying to build an OCR application on Android using Tesseract, but when I save the picture the application crushes.

I've build the photo capture with the tutorial Simple Android Photo Capture
and the OCR function with the guide Making a Simple OCR Android App using Tesseract.

This is the code I'm using:

package com.mmm.pitter;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;

import com.mmm.pitter.R;
import com.googlecode.tesseract.android.*;
import com.googlecode.leptonica.android.*;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.BitmapFactory;
import android.graphics.Matrix;
import android.media.ExifInterface;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Environment;
import android.provider.MediaStore;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class PitterActivity extends Activity
{
protected Button _button;
protected ImageView _image;
protected TextView _field;
protected String _path;
protected boolean _taken;

protected static final String PHOTO_TAKEN = "photo_taken";

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
{
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

setContentView(R.layout.main);

_image = ( ImageView ) findViewById( R.id.image );
_field = ( TextView ) findViewById( R.id.field );
_button = ( Button ) findViewById( R.id.button );
_button.setOnClickListener( new ButtonClickHandler() );

_path = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/images/make_machine_example.jpg";
}

public class ButtonClickHandler implements View.OnClickListener
{
public void onClick( View view ){
Log.i("MakeMachine", "ButtonClickHandler.onClick()" );
startCameraActivity();
}
}

protected void startCameraActivity()
{
Log.i("MakeMachine", "startCameraActivity()" );
File file = new File( _path );
Uri outputFileUri = Uri.fromFile( file );

Intent intent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE );
intent.putExtra( MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, outputFileUri );

startActivityForResult( intent, 0 );
}

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
{
Log.i( "MakeMachine", "resultCode: " + resultCode );
switch( resultCode )
{
case 0:
Log.i( "MakeMachine", "User cancelled" );
break;

case -1:
try {
onPhotoTaken();
}
catch (IOException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}
break;
}
}

protected void onPhotoTaken() throws IOException
{
Log.i( "MakeMachine", "onPhotoTaken" );

_taken = true;

BitmapFactory.Options options = new BitmapFactory.Options();
options.inSampleSize = 4;

Bitmap bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeFile( _path, options );

_image.setImageBitmap(bitmap);

_field.setVisibility( View.GONE );

//_path = path to the image to be OCRed
ExifInterface exif = new ExifInterface(_path);
int exifOrientation = exif.getAttributeInt(
ExifInterface.TAG_ORIENTATION,
ExifInterface.ORIENTATION_NORMAL);

int rotate = 0;

switch (exifOrientation) {
case ExifInterface.ORIENTATION_ROTATE_90:
rotate = 90;
break;
case ExifInterface.ORIENTATION_ROTATE_180:
rotate = 180;
break;
case ExifInterface.ORIENTATION_ROTATE_270:
rotate = 270;
break;
}

if (rotate != 0) {
int w = bitmap.getWidth();
int h = bitmap.getHeight();

// Setting pre rotate
Matrix mtx = new Matrix();
mtx.preRotate(rotate);

// Rotating Bitmap & convert to ARGB_8888, required by tess
bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, w, h, mtx, false);
bitmap = bitmap.copy(Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888, true);
}

TessBaseAPI baseApi = new TessBaseAPI();
// DATA_PATH = Path to the storage
// lang for which the language data exists, usually "eng"
baseApi.init(""sdcard/tesseract/tessdata", "eng");
baseApi.setImage(bitmap);
String recognizedText = baseApi.getUTF8Text();
System.out.println(recognizedText);
baseApi.end();
}

@Override
protected void onRestoreInstanceState( Bundle savedInstanceState){
Log.i( "MakeMachine", "onRestoreInstanceState()");
if( savedInstanceState.getBoolean( PitterActivity.PHOTO_TAKEN ) ) {
try {
onPhotoTaken();
}
catch (IOException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

@Override
protected void onSaveInstanceState( Bundle outState ) {
outState.putBoolean( PitterActivity.PHOTO_TAKEN, _taken );
}
}


And this is the log:

Answer

You need to put the data files in the tessdata directory, and specify the parent directory of tessdata in your init() method:

baseApi.init("/mnt/sdcard/tesseract", "eng");
