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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) allows to integrate recognition services into web services, software, and applications. The REST API offers code samples in .NET, Java, and PHP languages with the purpose to facilitate project implementation.
OCR Web Service integrates Optical Character Recognition to web services. It works with Android and iPhone in C#, Java, and PHP languages. The code samples for the SOAP API facilitate interactions with input and output parameters, methods, and values.
