Capture Text from Images
In just 4 lines of code, add OCR functionality to your .NET applications to capture text from images. It is really that simple!
Perform OCR on image - C#
// create an instance of OcrEngine var engine = new Aspose.OCR.OcrEngine(); // set image file engine.Image = ImageStream.FromFile(dir + "template.jpg"); // process the image engine.Process(); // get results Console.WriteLine(engine.Text);
Perform OCR on Scans
Aspose.OCR for .NET allows the developers to extract text and related information such as font, style & location of the text from specific parts of an image. This feature allows performing the OCR operation quickly on document scans that follow a similar structure.
Muti-Fonts & Styles Support
.NET OCR API supports to recognize Text in popular fonts & styles like Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New, Verdana, Tahoma and Calibri fonts in regular, bold and italic text styles.

Easy to Use Noise Removal Filters
The library supports noise removal filters. You can apply noise removal filters before image recognition to improve the overall accuracy rate.
Apply filters before processing an image - C#
// initialize OcrEngine var engine = new Aspose.OCR.OcrEngine(); // set image engine.Image = Aspose.OCR.ImageStream.FromFile(dir + "template.jpg"); // create collection of filters var filters = new Aspose.OCR.CorrectionFilters(); // add a few filters to the collection filters.Add(new Aspose.OCR.Filters.RemoveNoiseFilter()); filters.Add(new Aspose.OCR.Filters.GaussBlurFilter()); // assign collection to OcrEngine engine.Config.CorrectionFilters = filters; // do processing
