OCR Web Service API

The service provides optical scanning of uploaded document images, photos, and digital images with text recognition and extraction. Optical character recognition (OCR) scanning distinguishes between image and text content in uploaded originals then generates digital text from the original content. Output format options include .txt as well as PDF, Word, Excel .rtf, and .html.

API methods support submission of a file containing a scanned or photographed page image along with parameters for desired output, including text language, output data format, color or black and white, etc. Methods return the text recognized from characters in the input image and a file name for the output document.
