Upload an image to run OCR:
OCR or Opitical Character Recognition is where text can be 'read' out of an image.
If you would like to use this in your own application, then simply add a web reference
to the OCR Webservice
. Then using C# code similar to the following:
1: Stream sFile = fileUploader.PostedFile.InputStream;
2: Bitmap bmp = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(sFile) as Bitmap;
3: MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
4: bmp.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
5: ocr webservice = new ocr();
6: lblResult.Text = webservice.Analyze("Your Email", ms.ToArray());
You can use this webservice for testing purposes for images smaller than 100 x 100 pixels.
If you wish to use this on larger images, then contact us
for pricing, and we can enable
your account for production OCR processing.
If you are looking for free desktop OCR scanning, then you can download our free OCR scanning software
. Again, this will have the same limitation of 100x100 images in development / testing mode, then this restriction can be listed
by contacting us
