I am a Thunkable Beginner
I would like to build an app that will pull up Car Details from a Reg Plate.
Would it be possible to take a photo of the car reg plate and get the image recognition convert it to TEXT and fill in a Label control ?
Thanks for reading, any ideas greatly appreciated
That has nothing to do with Thunkable X.
Hey @cancmaster2016o welcome to the Thunkable community!
What you’re looking to do should be possible with an OCR API (try searching the Community for OCR) but it’s probably on the the more advanced/complex side of things.
Is this the first app you’re trying to build with Thunkable?
Thanks for you help / advice
Yes it is, maybe a little ambitious lol
I think I will start with something more basic
Sounds like the best approach to me Miles!
I’ve tagged the OCR related posts in the Community for you here:
One of the more popular OCR APIs seems to be this one:
To learn how APIs work (and build some really interesting apps along the way) we have some tutorials on our YouTube Channel:
And you can also find some great tutorials over on @darren’s channel too:
Hope that helps!
