Analysis of Images for OCR

ABBYY Mobile Imaging SDK provides innovative features to evaluate image quality and determine whether or not a photographed document is suitable for Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
The SDK detects images of insufficient quality using the following three criteria: Blurred images, Uneven lighting/glare, Poor lighting/noise.
With the image evaluation feature integrated into an application, users can see in advance if a certain photograph is suitable for OCR or not, thus saving time and optimizing their processes.

Enhancement of Visual Quality

The ABBYY SDK delivers an optimal set of features to address the majority of needs in the area of mobile image processing, such as:

  • Crop / edge detection,

  • Inversion,
  • Gray scaling,
  • Brightness / contrast adjustment,
