Skew Correction

Images fed to the ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine are typically taken with a camera built into a mobile phone. These images are often skewed. The MSDK must correct image the skew for better and faster OCR results. In ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine 3.0, image pre-processing corrects the skew as well as binarises the image. For successful skewing correction, images should not be skewed by more than 5-7 degrees. This feature can be disabled.

New Document Аnalysis

ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine 3.0 includes new Document Аnalysis (DA). The new DA analyzes documents in their entirety and produces a set of blocks, each having its own internal structure. The new DA detects noise more reliably and make OCR faster and more accurate as a result. This is particularly important for images obtained with mobile phone cameras.

Paragraph Assembly

The previous SDK versions read texts only left to right and top to bottom, merging all the data thus obtained into one linear array. The new ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine automatically detects text columns. The DA detects the borders of the text blocks and reads each block separately. Thus recognition is performed left to right and top to bottom only within the boundaries of a separate block.
