"The new OCR-IT Demo Android App, for the lack of better name, and its source code are designed to help app developers bring the power of OCR to their Android apps easily and seamlessly," said company officials at OCR-IT. "In the onslaught of new apps for Android smart phones, we believe that those that integrate OCR will stand out for users. These capabilities add significant values since it lets users do more in less time by transforming paper-based documents into usable formats. We want to help more developers bring these capabilities to end users."
The OCR-IT Demo Android App allows users to capture images of documents taken with a smart phone camera and to create a document library to house document images. The solution provides single-button access that extracts text in several predefined hard-coded languages in seconds. Results can be viewed in two hard-coded formats: Searchable PDF and Plain Text TXT. In addition, the OCR-IT Demo Android App offers links to external pages that provide additional information about OCR in the Cloud, as well as transparent details that allow developers to see OCR processing in action.
The OCR-IT OCR cloud platform ties together high-quality OCR technologies and Csloud-based scalability through a powerful Web API. The API allows developers, regardless of background and experience, to add powerful image and picture cleanup tools and OCR in multiple languages to their applications. The API provides enhanced control over text extraction, and offers a wide selection of input and output formats.
