asprise_ocr_sdk_python_api 15.3.0.8

Asprise OCR (optical character recognition) and barcode recognition SDK is a high performance royalty-free Python API library. It converts images (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, etc) into text, xml, searchable PDF or editable RTF/Word formats. Data capture are supported for processing documents like invoices and forms.

Install and Run the Sample OCR Application

You may install with Python’s pip either from a Unix/Linux shell or Windows command console:

> pip install asprise_ocr_sdk_python_api       # Windows

$ sudo pip install asprise_ocr_sdk_python_api  # Linux/Mac OS X

A sample front-end GUI for the OCR engine will be installed as a script named ‘asprise_ocr’. You can run the following command in the same shell/console:

asprise_ocr

The following are the screenshots on Linux and Windows respectively:
