Aspose.OCR for .NET is a robust optical character recognition API. Developers can easily add OCR functionalities in their applications. API is extensible, easy to use, compact and provides a simple set of classes for controlling character recognition. It supports commonly used image formats and provides functionalities like reading multiple characters and fonts from images, bold and italic styles, noise removal filters, scanning of the whole image or any part of the image and much more. Moreover, API has the ability to perform OCR using the GPU instead of the core processor.

Here is code the code for single recognition.
Single line OCR Recognition - C#
// The path to the documents directory. string path = "dirPath/"; // Initialize an instance of AsposeOcr AsposeOcr libVar = new AsposeOcr(); // Recognize image string slResult = libVar.RecognizeLine(path + "sample_line.png"); // Print single line recognized text Console.WriteLine(slResult);

OCR Language Auto-Detection Support - C#
// documents directory path string dirPath = "directorypath/"; // Initialize an instance AsposeOcr ocrLanguage = new AsposeOcr(); // Recognize image string spanishText = ocrLanguage.RecognizeImage(dirPath + "SpanishOCR.bmp"); // Print the recognized text Console.WriteLine(spanishText);
