Embedded Projects with ABBYY OCR

  • Before ABBYY can provide you recommendations and guidelines, ABBYY has to get a general description about the project, including the planed technical specifications.
  • Sample Images - please collect a relevant selection of sample images that should be processed. These images should cover a real life quality range.

Needed Embedded OCR Project Information

If the standard OCR SDKs seem not be suited, please provide answers to the listed questions below.

Business Scenario Information

  • Have you ever realised an OCR project?
  • What types of images be processed? (format, resolution)
  • Where do the images come from?
  • What kind of information/text should be OCRed?
  • What Export formats are required? (text only, XML with coordinates, searchable PDF, other?)
  • What is the business model of the solution/device that should use embedded OCR?
  • What are the quantities the solution/devices should be sold?
  • How big is the overall project / the share planed for OCR?
