Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Sign Translation: The model could be used in a language translation app, identifying the text in different languages on signs, billboards, or other public spaces, and translating it into the user's preferred language.

  2. Accessibility Tools: The "Text Finder" model could be applied in the development of tools for visually impaired people. The model can identify and read the text from images, assisting those who are unable to do so for themselves.

  3. Document Digitization: The model could be used to scan and digitize physical documents, books, or old manuscripts. This can help in preserving historical documents and making them more accessible for online research.

  4. Augmented Reality Games: The model could be utilized in AR games to identify real-world texts, adding a new layer of interaction with the physical environment and enhancing the gaming experience.

  5. Landmark and Business Identification: The model could be used in travel or mapping apps, identifying business names, historic landmarks, and other points of interest by reading the text from images captured by users or Google street view.
