How to Read Text from an Image in C#

To Recognize Text From Image in C#, the first step is to install Iron OCR (https://ironsoftware.com/csharp/ocr/tutorials/how-to-read-text-from-an-image-in-csharp-net/). This is most easily achieved using the NuGet Package Manager using the ID name OCR for the package we wish to install (https://www.nuget.org/packages/ocr).

The Auto OCR class is a .NET class allowing OCR to be achieved in a single line of code. It can read text from images in C# .Net with very little setup, and Iron OCR will automatically make a best guess at all of the correct configuration and image cleanup operations required for a good OCR operation and clean text to be extracted from an image.

The Advanced OCR class can be used for advanced OCR operations to read text from an image in c#. It allows us to extract text from images, TIFFs, scans and photographs, and even PDF documents. Within the tutorial, we have source code for dealing with different situations where we have low, medium, and high quality scans, and also look at how we can correct for digital noise, skew, perspective, and rotation.

The next section of the tutorial shows how we can optimize Iron OCR in C# for the fastest result, although there is always a balance between speed and OCR accuracy.

We move forward to look at how we can use Iron OCR and C# to extract international text from documents using non-English scripts. We show how to install language packs such as Arabic, Spanish, and Chinese.

The last part of the tutorial shows how we can drill down into the OCR results using C# code. This allows us to see pages, paragraphs, lines, words, characters, and even barcodes found within a document. We can look at their typeface, statistical accuracy, location, and even return an image for that object.

We have learnt how to convert an image to text in c#. This project provides full source code available as a ZIP file as well as a GIT Repository where the C# source code can be viewed and modified by developers.

GS1 DataMatrix Font and Encoder Suite

IDAutomation’s GS1-DataMatrix barcode fonts allow printing of ECC-200 Data Matrix symbols with TrueType, OpenType, PCL and PostScript fonts by using IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology. Using Reed Solomon error correction, the printed DataMatrix symbol can also withstand damage without causing a loss of data. This high level of error correction is far more advanced than one dimensional barcodes with check digits. The User License install package includes FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Excel, Word, Access, Crystal Reports, OpenOffice examples and an ActiveX Control and Signed ActiveX CAB File. Developer Licenses include the User License examples plus for Java Library, JavaScript, SSRS font encoders as well as VB examples with COM ASP.NET and .NET framework encoder DLLs.

Recent Updates include:
* GS1 update resolves an issue where a second FNC1 would be encoded as a <GS> instead of the actual FNC1 character. This update was made to the following encoders: Crystal Reports, .NET Components, UFL, JavaScript, Java, C++ .h file, LibreOffice VB and Microsoft Office VBA.
* Added GS1 HRI code in VBA, Crystal VB and JavaScript to the Suite version of the package.
* Added the 2D Font Encoder Application (FEA) to the package.
* Updated the JavaScript encoder to resolve reported issues.
* Updated installation files with new digital signatures.

With a purchase of the Developer License or above, a full set of Web Fonts are included in WOFF, EOT and SVG formats to easily display barcodes in any web browser.
