VeryPDF Cloud OCR API Key Features:
Read Characters from Images using OCR REST API
VeryPDF Cloud OCR API helps you read characters from images. You can recognize characters from BMP and TIFF formats at the moment. In order to recognize the characters from these images, you need to pass the specific image name and the format to the VeryPDF Cloud OCR API's REST API. The API returns the response including recognized text, font name, font size, font style (bold, italic, underline). You can get this response either in XML or JSON format.
Scan Images with the Help of OCR API
Optical character recognition can be performed either on a whole image or partial image. Scanning whole images takes longer than scanning a partial image. If the required characters are all over the image then scanning the whole image is better option. If the characters you're concerned with exist only in a particular area of the image then you can specify that area and read characters and font information from only that part of the image. VeryPDF Cloud OCR API helps you recognize characters from the whole image or the part of the image
If you want to scan partial image then you can specify a rectangular area containing the characters. VeryPDF Cloud OCR API allows you to pass X and Y coordinates from where the rectangle is supposed to be started and the rectangle width and height. Once you invoke the recognize operation with the rectangular area specified, the VeryPDF Cloud OCR API will read the characters and font information from that area and return the response in XML or JSON format. Image scanning attributes include the following:
- Scan whole or partial image for character recognition.
- Recognize text from a rectangular area.
- Specify rectangular area using X and Y coordinates, height and width.
Optical Character Recognition and Font Attributes Support
Optical character recognition involves handling font attributes. In order to make sense of a particular character from image, you need to know different font attributes as well. If font information is not available then it is not feasible to recognize a character from the image. VeryPDF Cloud OCR API API helps you recognize text and related font attributes accurately. These font attributes include font name, font size, font style (bold, italic, underline) etc.
Recognize Characters of Different Languages using OCR API
The characters of different languages have different representations. If we combine the languages with the font types and styles, it makes a large set of characters to be recognized from an image. VeryPDF Cloud OCR API handles this task very precisely. It can recognize text in English, French, and Spanish languages at the moment.

Can I OCR screen shots?
Our OCR engine requires images at a resolution of 150 dpi or greater and as such it is not optimal suited for reading PC screen shots which are only 72dpi. An Additional problem is that the fonts used for web design are usually sans serif fonts, which are more difficult to recognize than serif fonts.
But as we process your uploaded image for better accuracy it might be possible to OCR even screen shots. just give it a try. In the most cases the result is faster than typing all by hand.
