LEADTOOLS OCR engines extend the functionality of LEADTOOLS SDKs by providing properties, methods, and events for easily incorporating optical and magnetic ink character recognition (OCR / MICR) into your applications. Superior OCR processing speeds are exceptionally useful in form recognition and processing applications. Fax, dot matrix and halftones can be preprocessed to improve recognition results

Features include preset confidence and accuracy levels, artificial intelligence, and built-in and user-defined lexicons for limiting the type of text to recognize within a particular zone. The OCR engines can perform automatic area segmentation to create multi-layered zones for recognition of areas such as tables, rules, images and text. Or, you can manually designate up to 250 such zones.

The OCR Engine supports multiple fonts, sizes (5 to 72 point) and styles for all major European and Scandinavian languages (Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish) as well as English and MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition). Support for dialects such as US. English, French Canadian, Latin American Spanish, Swiss German, and Brazilian Portuguese is also provided.

Recognized text can be exported to more than 40 different formats, including MS Word, MS Excel, Dbase and WordPerfect.
