OCR: count occurrences of each character (Goole Goggles?

Postby HOOOOOOOOO » Sat Dec 28, 2013 4:44 am

I'm trying to find a device that can do both of these:
- OCR a sudoku game (before being solved) into text numbers
- Count the occurrences of each number (before game being solved)

You know how when you look at a sudoku game sheet, if you wanted to count how many times each number shows up, it'd take a while in your head.
Ideally, I want a device that can count them all instantly or in a few seconds, as you OCR the image, or right afterwards. (so doing OCR & then using Excel's counting function would take just too long, right? Unless they all can be done in a few seconds)

I know Google Goggles solves Sudoku, but it doesn't seem to include the "counting" function.

So how do I go about finding something that can do this? I searched but no avail.
Any idea welcome!
