RecoStar ICR/OCR for DotImage
An add-on to DotImage Document Imaging
The DotImage RecoStar OCR Engine Add-on allows you to integrate the Open Text RecoStar Full Page Reader into your applications that are built using DotImage. The engine is also available in an OCR/ICR version that can read written text in addition to machine-printed text.
This Add-on works with the same recognition technology as Open Text Capture Recognition Engine, the premium OCR product by Open Text. Therefore, it's is just as fast. High processing speed, in turn, generates cost savings because if large document volumes are transferred to a server, a high processing speed reduces the required hardware equipment. Not only that, speed is also a paramount factor when it comes to the integration of OCR into a document scanner or multi-functional peripheral. In this case, it is essential that the conversion keeps pace with the speed.
Top-notch recognition rates even for poor-quality documents
The integrated Multi Expert Voting, i.e., the comparison of results of recognition engines operating in parallel, combined with the system’s context knowledge, produces almost error-free results.
A server software must not fail under any circumstances. For more than 30 years, the RecoStar OCR engine is renown for its robustness and reliability and is standard in almost all applications defined as “mission-critical”. The DotImage add-on follows this tradition.
Cost savings—specific task for a fair price

The RecoStar OCR engine gives many options for extracting the text from your images. Through only a few lines of code, you have access to the characters, alternate characters, and location of the text from a selected region of interest:
private void PerformOcr()
RecoStarEngine engine = new RecoStarEngine();
OcrPage page = engine.Recognize(myImage, myBounds);
OcrTextRegion region = page.Regions as OcrTextRegion;
