    OCR API

    Chaos 83 Level 1

      We have a license for LiveCycle, but I'm trying to find documentation regarding the OCR capabilities that Adobe has.

       

      The goal is as follows: to create a service that receives a file (image or pdf), runs OCR on it and then returns the text within. If it was a PDF passed in then it would be nice to return a PDF with the newly derived text embedded within the PDF.

       

      I guess I want to know:

      - Does Adobe have an API for me to use (most likely from C#) that will allow me to OCR a PDF/image?

      - If Adobe does OCR, can it embed the derived text?

      - Where can I find documentation/examples to do any of this?

       

      Thanks!
