Solid Framework with Solid OCR can be used to access the content of your image file. Solid OCR will scan through the file and reconstruct clean Unicode text, lines, boxes and images, in reading order, and provide the co-ordinates of the file’s elements as well as their color and font attributes (if text).
This sample can export up to two files.
- A Text file containing the scanned files information
- A SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file
The source code for this sample is provided in the form of a zip file. Solid Framework for .NET is available from the developer portal (self-service).
