Welcome to the 15th of 31 applications we will post (in addition to the contest participants'
submissions). Make sure you add this blog to your RSS / Atom
feed and check the gallery
for summaries of all the apps as they are released.
One of the things that I like about having an OCR engine at my fingertips is the ability to just throw it at things and see what happens. This is just such an app and it really shows off how easy it is to build applications that are rich.
The heart of this app is our DocumentViewer control that acts as a document image browser. It provides a thumbnail view and an image selection tool. From there, I can grab a section of the image and hand it off to the Tesseract OCR engine and see what I get out of it. The resulting text is dropped onto the clipboard for pasting into another application.
