ICR SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS provides fast and accurate Intelligent Character Recognition SDK technology for .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ developers. Leverage the high-level LEADTOOLS ICR toolkit to rapidly develop robust, high-performance recognition applications that incorporate features and benefits such as saving time and money over manual data entry by extracting hand-written text from scanned documents, and converting images to text-searchable formats such as PDF, PDF/A, and Microsoft Word.

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.

With extensive support for more than forty character sets, programmers can expand their customer base by providing the same solution for many languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic.
