The LEADTOOLS Recognition Imaging SDK is a handpicked collection of LEADTOOLS SDK features designed to build end-to-end document imaging 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 Imaging 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, and more. Check out the Document Imaging Family for more details on the other LEADTOOLS toolkits and add-on modules for developing your next document imaging application.
