Like you I also faced many problems implementing OCR in Android, but after much Googling I found the solution, and it surely is the best example of OCR.
Let me explain using step-by-step guidance.
First, download the source code from https://github.com/rmtheis/tess-two.
Import all three projects. After importing you will get an error.
To solve the error you have to create a
res folder in the tess-two project
First, just create res folder in tess-two by tess-two->RightClick->new Folder->Name it "res"
After doing this in all three project the error should be gone.
Now download the source code from https://github.com/rmtheis/android-ocr, here you will get best example.
Now you just need to import it into your workspace, but first you have to download android-ndk from this site:
http://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html i have windows 7 - 32 bit PC so I have download http://dl.google.com/android/ndk/android-ndk-r9-windows-x86.zip this file
Now extract it suppose I have extract it into E:\Software\android-ndk-r9 so I will set this path on Environment Variable
Right Click on MyComputer->Property->Advance-System-Settings->Advance->Environment Variable-> find PATH on second below Box and set like path like below picture
Now open cmd and go to on D:\Android Workspace\tess-two like below
If you have successfully set up environment variable of NDK then just type ndk-build just like above picture than enter you will not get any kind of error and all file will be compiled successfully:
Now download other source code also from https://github.com/rmtheis/tess-two , and extract and import it and give it name OCRTest, like in my PC which is in D:\Android Workspace\OCRTest
Import test-two in this and run OCRTest and run it; you will get the best example of OCR.
