LEADTOOLS Recognition Developer Toolkit
The LEADTOOLS Recognition SDK is a handpicked collection of LEADTOOLS SDK features designed to build end-to-end OCR applications within enterprise-level document automation solutions that require OCR, MICR, OMR, barcode, forms recognition and processing, PDF, print capture, archival, annotation, and image viewing functionality. This powerful set of tools utilizes LEAD's award-winning image processing technology to intelligently identify document features that can be used to recognize and extract data from any type of scanned or faxed form image.
LEADTOOLS Recognition includes the LEADTOOLS OCR Engine, which powers the text and forms recognition capabilities bundled with this product. Check out the Document Family for more details on the other LEADTOOLS toolkits for developing your next application.
