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.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
