I need to write a text to picture captured by camera. How to do it without using Qt? Is any way to do it for windows dialog - based application?

I am able to write text(english) to the picture. However, I wanted to try for other languages. Writing text in Hindi language does not show the text(encoded text appears). Can someone please suggest how to support text in other languages apart from English.

Thanks, Shredderwoods

@Shredderwoods, please do not post answers here, if you have a question or comment, thank you.

by default, putText only supports a small ascii subset. if you built with Qt support, you can use your system's fonts, there is also a freetype module in opencv_contrib for arbitrary bitmap fonts.

just don't forget, that this is a computer-vision library, where your problem is not really relevant ...
