I am trying to install Tesseract OCR on OSX 10.6...
I have got as far as installing leptonic (by downloading src from http://www.leptonica.org/download.html and installing with
./configure; make; sudo make install) seemingly without any problems - but I don't know how to check.
I also installed Tesseract OCR 3 (from http://tesseract-ocr.googlecode.com/files/tesseract-3.00.tar.gz with
./runautoconf; ./configure; make; sudo make install) also seemingly without issue - but again I don't know how to check.
When I run
tesseract input.jpg . I get error...
bash-3.2$ tesseract ~/Desktop/DCIM/101_FUJI/DSCF1043.JPG . Tesseract Open Source OCR Engine with Leptonica Error in pixReadStreamJpeg: function not present Error in pixReadStream: jpeg: no pix returned Error in pixRead: pix not read Error in fopenReadStream: file not found Error in pixRead: image file not found Image file ######Exif cannot be read! bash-3.2$
Similar error if I use tiff file as input.
I think I need some libraries - instructions for Ubuntu say to install libjpeg12-dev etc...
Does anyone have details of how to install tesseract on OSX?
