Using LEADTOOLS v19 and the Annotations SDK alongside the OCR SDK, I have created a sample that allows the user to load and redact an image and then OCR and save out the output.

Here is some of the relevant code:

This method will burn the annotations to the image using the RenderOnImage method:


      private RasterImage BurnImage()
         RasterImage image = imageViewer.Image;
         annAutomationManager.RenderingEngine.RenderOnImage(annAutomation.Container, image);
         return image;

This method will OCR the image and save the results as a PDF with Image Over Text enabled in order to see the redaction in the output:

      private void DoOCR(RasterImage image, string fileName)
         using (IOcrEngine ocrEngine = OcrEngineManager.CreateEngine(OcrEngineType.Advantage, false))
            ocrEngine.Startup(null, null, null, null);

            PdfDocumentOptions pdfOptions = ocrEngine.DocumentWriterInstance.GetOptions(DocumentFormat.Pdf) as PdfDocumentOptions;
            pdfOptions.ImageOverText = true;
            ocrEngine.DocumentWriterInstance.SetOptions(DocumentFormat.Pdf, pdfOptions);

            using (IOcrDocument ocrDocument = ocrEngine.DocumentManager.CreateDocument())
               ocrDocument.Pages.AddPage(image, null);
               ocrDocument.Save(fileName, DocumentFormat.Pdf, null);
