Text recognition from Images

Optical character recognition can be performed either on a whole image or on a specific portion of the image. If the required characters are all over the image then scanning the whole image is better option. If you want to scan partial image then specify a rectangular area containing the characters. Aspose.OCR Cloud for cURL allows passing X and Y coordinates from where the rectangle is supposed to be started as well as its width and height. Once the character recognition operation is initiated within specified rectangular area, the cloud OCR SDK will read the characters and font information from that area and return the response in XML or JSON format.

  • Scan whole or partial image for character recognition
  • Recognize text from a rectangular area
  • Specify rectangular area using X and Y coordinates, height and width
  • Optical Character Recognition And Font Attributes Support

Multi Language support for Characters Recognition

The characters of different languages have different representations. If we combine the languages with the font types and styles - it makes a large set of characters to be recognized from an image.

When talking about specific fonts, this API is capable of extracting text in Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New, Verdana, Tahoma and Calibri fonts with regular, bold or italic styles from images.
