The latest OCR API update doubles the performance of all our OCR API endpoints. In addition, it adds PDF autorotation. We already added image autoration last year. Today’s update expands this feature to PDF documents like invoices, receipts or FAX. You can test it on the online OCR form by checking “Detect Orientation”:
OCR.space Local is powerful server-based OCR software for automated document capture and PDF conversion. Designed for low to high-volume batch processing, it enables organizations and scanning service providers to convert paper scans, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and PDF image documents into electronic files suitable for full-text search and long-term digital archiving.
Technically the local OCR.space Server is identical to our popular online OCR API service. The on-premise installation has the same features, same API parameters and especially the same OCR quality as the OCR.space PRO PDF plan, but runs 100% local (offline) and never contacts the Internet. It can also create searchable PDFs.
This works with PDFs with images inside (such as the ones you get from scanning documents) but also works with images (jpeg/png/gif). The image is converted to a searchable PDF that you can download.
Try it here and select the “Create visible text layer” option. This way you can easily see the text layer that gets added during the conversion.
