OCR Cloud API
OCR Web Service is a cloud-based service that provides a web service interfaces (SOAP and REST) which allows you to integrate Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology into your software products, mobile devices or other web services. Our service is a flexible, efficient, powerful and scalable platform that can handle high volumes of pages and large numbers of requests
Accuracy and Features
The OCR Web Service is built on high accuracy automated optical character recognition (OCR) technology with up to 99% accurate. This increased accuracy greatly reduces the need for post-recognition proof reading and correction.
You may convert using 46 recognition languages and 7 input formats: Adobe PDF (including multipage), TIF (including multipage), JPEG, BMP, PCX, PNG and GIF. Service gives you the possibility to convert extracted text into 5 output formats: Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word/Excel, RTF and Plain text documents.
The term Web services describes a standardized way of integrating Web-based applications using the SOAP and REST interfaces. Unlike traditional client/server models, such as a Web server/Web page system, Web services do not provide the user with a GUI. Web services instead share business logic, data and processes through a programmatic interface across a network.
OCR Web Service provides programmatic access to using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. Service is implemented using SOAP and REST interfaces and can be accessed through API by HTTP or HTTPS requests.
The applications interface, not the users. Developers can then add the Web service to a GUI (such as a Web page or an executable program) to offer specific functionality to users. Web services allow different applications from different sources to communicate with each other without time-consuming custom coding, and because all communication via HTTP, Web services are not tied to any one operating system or programming language. For example, Java can talk with Perl, Windows applications can talk with UNIX applications.
