Text extraction from images

Full-page OCR for 200+ languages

Based on ABBYY’s industry leading FineReader OCR technology, Cloud OCR SDK supports the recognition of printed text in more than 200 languages, including most Asian languages: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Farsi, Vietnamese, Thai and others.

Zonal OCR (printed text recognition), ICR (hand-printed text)

Cloud OCR SDK recognizes both printed and hand-printed text within specific fields (zonal OCR). These recognition features are used for reading forms, invoices, tax, medical, financial and other structured and semi-structured documents; including those filled out by hand.

Document conversion

Convert image/PDF to searchable PDF, PDF/A

Advanced PDF conversion features reduce the size of scanned images and PDFs up to 10 times, while preserving the visual quality via powerful MRC compression technology and support of searchable PDF and PDF/A formats.

Convert image/PDF to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint

ABBYY’s Advanced Document Recognition Technology (ADRT) offers an unrivaled capability to understand and recreate the structure and layout of the original document, while converting the scanned image or PDF version of the document into its original editable Microsoft Office format.
