OCR implementation using Windev

Post by rahulmr » Fri May 25, 2018 10:02 am

Hi ,
We would like to know about the feasibility of having the OCR implementation using the Windev(WL-Language). We have searched in many forums but were not able to get any solution for this. Is there any example available to start with or any manuals to refer .

Thanks,
Rahul M R

Unfortunately, we are not familiar with Windev nor WL-Language. OCR SDK provides simple C-export functions and (like most Windows API functions, for example). If you can get this exports from DLL and use them - you can use the SDK.
