Optical Character Recognition, the first steps

Today has been quite an interesting day, I learned that my camera on my test device will only start if the phone is in a certain orientation. After discovering this issue and adjusting to the workarounds I was finally able to get the Android Vision API to work and then freeze and record the data from the text. I'm using this optical character recognition to determine user information from an Identification card that does not have any RFID or NFC capabilities. The next step from today is to refine the data and then use it to determine which user is using the app and whose data to retrieve.
