More and more developers are searching for solutions to easily implement OCR features into their mobile applications. Since Google released Tesseract as an Open Source OCR Engine, it’s been the go-to OCR solution. Although it was painful to implement and modify, there weren’t too many free and powerful OCR alternatives on the market. Despite the lack of proper documentation, difficult implementation on mobile devices and the need to pre-process all images, Tesseract gained popularity among OCR developers.
It’s time however to make OCR implementation a bit less painful and a bit more fun. With the Anyline® SDK, you receive more support, automated image pre-processing and the flexibility to develop for a variety of use cases.
Below you can find more specific differences, but don’t take our word for it. Download the Anyline® SDK and the AnyOCR Font and start implementing your own OCR feature and see for yourself!
