ABBYY's Cloud OCR SDK is a Web OCR service providing the excellent quality of ABBYY’s text recognition via an application programming interface (API). Developers who prefer to use an external OCR service over a locally installed text recognition toolkit will appreciate this highly-scalable image conversion service. Running safely and redundantly on the Microsoft® Azure infrastructure within the European Union, the OCR service is available to customers in many countries.
ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK is ideal for the following document conversion scenarios:
Regardless of the platform, a locally installed application can easily convert scans and image PDFs using the ABBYY cloud service via an Internet connection. The information contained in such images is extracted by the service and sent back to the on-premise application.
Mobile apps can be extended with text recognition and business card recognition functionalities with only minimal increase of the app’s actual file size. The conversion of images into text that can be processed further is performed outside the application, using ABBYY Cloud service.
Existing Cloud offerings or other on-line services can be quickly and cost efficiently expanded with OCR and provide high-quality text recognition and document conversion functions. Images for conversion into readable text are sent from Cloud to Cloud.
Images, scans, faxes and PDFs are sent to the OCR service alongside with the desired processing parameters for the following:
An associated ISV who has used the ABBYY technology for many years recommended we look at ABBYY based on their reputation for the highest quality OCR. The ABBYY developer account was easy to set up and the portal provided all the required documentation and assistance in getting started, including a downloadable sample code. The pricing options suited us for PRONI Street Directories as it was a bulk process and we knew the exact number of documents that needed to be sent to ABBYY. ABBYY Cloud OCR has been a consistent win for us.
