Dynamsoft’s Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK is a powerful solution for web-based image processing, which allows developers to ignore the low-level details, and focus on what is important. In July, 2012 Dynamic Web TWAIN 8.0 was released to the market, adding new cutting-edge technology to the API. Two new powerful add-ons were added which add support for OCR (Optical Character Recognition), and Barcode Recognition. This document will focus on the OCR add-on, which allows developers to make use of this technology without worrying about the low-level implementation, while maintaining flexibility.
Below, we’ll make use of Dynamsoft’s new Dynamic Web TWAIN OCR add-on to extract text from a scanned image. All three output modes will be demonstrated: Plain Text, Plain Text PDF, and Image over Text PDF. If the Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK is not yet installed on your system, you can easily download a trial, or view and use the online demo on the Dynamsoft web-site.
