Document Imaging Suite

The LEADTOOLS Document Imaging Suite SDK is a comprehensive collection of LEADTOOLS SDK features designed to build end-to-end document imaging solutions that require OCR, MICR, OMR, ICR, barcode, forms recognition and processing, PDF, HTML5 Zero-footprint viewing, conversion, print capture, archival, annotation, and image viewing functionality. This powerful set of tools utilises LEAD’s award-winning image processing technology to intelligently identify document features that can be used to recognise and extract data from any type of scanned or faxed form image.

LEADTOOLS Document Imaging Suite includes the LEADTOOLS Advantage OCR Module which powers the text and forms recognition capabilities bundled with this product. LEADTOOLS also packages and licenses additional third-party OCR engines which offer ICR, Arabic language support, and more.
