SnapOCR is a highly accurate Optical Character Recognition Service that allows you to easily extract text within images. SnapOCR will return the words line by line with bounding box coordinates.
SnapOCR can also search images for custom patterns (such as web addresses and phone numbers) which is useful for business card reader, product image validation applications. If SnapOCR finds any web address or validated phone number the service will return this information.
You must register for one of the packages of SnapOCR and get an API key before using this API.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial 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.
