Developers using LEADTOOLS WinRT libraries are able to add imaging features to Windows Store applications for any desktop, tablet, and Windows Phone device running Windows 8 or later. These WinRT libraries provide advanced imaging technology such as viewer controls, image format support, compression, image processing, OCR, barcode, annotation, and DICOM—specifically designed for the next generation of cross-platform Windows applications—with outstanding quality, efficiency, and speed.


Overview of the LEADTOOLS WinRT Technology


LEADTOOLS provides fast and highly accurate Optical Character Recognition SDK technology for .NET (C# & VB), C/C++, WinRT, iOS, macOS, Java, and web. Leverage the high-level LEADTOOLS OCR toolkit to rapidly develop robust, scalable, and high-performance recognition and document processing applications that extract text from scanned documents and convert images to text-searchable formats such as PDF, PDF/A, DOC, DOCX, XML, and XPS.

The advanced OCR SDK technology in LEADTOOLS is multi-faceted and can be used as a standalone feature as well as the driving force behind more advanced technologies such as forms recognition, check recognition and document conversion. On its own, programmers can write as few as three lines of code to convert an image to text-searchable documents.
