Yes, you can get text from moving camera without start/stop buttons. You should create the TextCaptureService and feed the stream of frames from your camera to the service. You will be getting a continuous stream of recognition results with the 'stability' status from the service. The result stability status is an estimate of how stable the result is. When the stability achieved the needed status, you can get the result. You do not need to stop the service to get the result.

Do I need to use stream of frames from camera or can I create frames from images I already have? I have tried doing the latter and it's not working. I have posted my question on the forum but wanted to see if there was any solution already available.

Hi Regis,

A similar question has already been discussed in this post: Do text recognition only on one image?

ABBYY RTR SDK includes the functionality of processing separate images, but only as a part of the Extended version of the product, which can be requested from our sales for testing at the Licensing web page.
