#OCR #API webservice designed for C# / .NET


Converting images to text has long been quite a difficult task for computers to perform, since it requires a type of fuzzy-logic, where things are not exact or precise.

We’ve developed a OCR web service, where you can submit a image either as a base-64 encoded string, or as a URL to an image that is hosted somewhere online.  – by default, it is set to recognise one line of text (not a page), but you can change that via the extraArguments, psm settings.

Check out the new API at http://ocr.apixml.net

And for those who don’t want to read, here’s how to make a GET request to the API:

GET /ocr.asmx/ProcessUrl?url=string&extraArguments=string HTTP/1.1
Host: ocr.apixml.net
