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.

CAD DLL

CAD DLL is a multifunctional library for viewing, importing and converting different CAD files, including DWG (2.5 – 2018), DXF, DWF, HPGL/ HGL, PLT, CGM, SVG, TIFF, BMP, JPG, GIF and others. The library is especially convenient for integrating CAD into applications developed in VC++, C#, Delphi, ASP .NET, C++Builder, Visual Basic and VB.NET. CAD DLL doesnt require AutoCAD or any other third party software. The license is royalty-free and has no time limitations, i.e. you can use the license as long as you want.

CAD DLL is available in 32- and 64-bit versions on Windows platform; also it is possible to use CAD DLL on Linux. Detailed technical information and free technical support will help you to implement the library into your project as fast and easily as possible.

The trial version of CAD DLL includes examples of applications in Visual C++; C#; Delphi, ASP .NET and other programming languages. CAD DLL library demonstrates the use of such functions as import, viewing and export drawings.

The import feature allows you to get access to the entity properties: coordinates, layers, blocks, attributes, etc. Using the export feature you can save the drawing in a vector or raster format. Convert a drawing into vector formats like AutoCAD DWG/DXF (including DWG 2004), PDF, SVG, CGM, HPGL, EMF, WMF. Also, you can transform the drawing into BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG and other raster formats.

Automatic export to AutoCAD DWG/DXF and other CAD formats through the Windows Metafile technology allows saving everything your application plots or prints to CAD by writing just a short code script. Besides that, CAD DLL supports Unicode and SHX fonts, including big fonts and Asian symbols.

You can rotate a drawing by xy-coordinate axes, manage layers, select the background color and the drawing scale as well as change the line color and the line weight.

Easy in use with royalty-free license and attractive price, CAD DLL is an absolutely essential tool for developers!
