Hi everyone,

I am Mahendra and I have a question for you, I hope you can help me. I am working on a project in which I need to implement OCR function for a camera, too. I was searching on the internet for a fine solution and finally, I encountered a camera sdk here:, that looks good but before I start working with it, I’d like to ask whether any of you have any experience with it.

Thank you for helping me!

You can also try TOCR 4.0 library. It gives good result. I had used it in my past company.

I sent a suggestion to your question on

Are you trying to develop a WinForms or WebForms .NET application?
I am asking this because I noticed that some of the posters who replied to your question are talking about web and ASP.NET applications.
Note that the scenario might differ a little bit when creating an ASP.NET web application. Because you need to add the OCR code on a web service on the server side, and call this service from the client side code.
But if you want to perform all the OCR process on the server side, I don’t think you need to use Web Services. You can just call the OCR functions directly from the server side (ASP.NET code).
