About service




About service:



This service allows you to get text from the image by optical character recognition (OCR). For OCR, you need to upload the image first. Then choose the language in which the text is written. After that you'll get a result.
Important tips for the best result:
— upload only good quality images
— text orientation should be horizontal.

Wayback machine says that service started around 04.07.2014. But we do not know the exact day. For the details, please, go to Revisions History. We also have a lot of plans about the functionality, but we will be happy and your ideas that you can send us [email protected].

ToS page will be published later.






Tesseract is used for recognition process. The site is written on PHP using MVC. It has its own non-public API. We plan to create unique algorithms to improve recognition processing.
