Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

LEADTOOLS Cloud Services provides an OCR web API method to extract text from an image or convert it to a searchable document such as PDF or DOC. Converted documents maintain the original look and feel, including text, font, layout, tables, graphics, and more.

When converting documents with OCR, users can provide logic to redact text in the output document. For example, a regular expression can be used to find and redact personally identifying information such as social security numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses.
