The next opportunities:

  • added new parameters in the method getTextAreas: AreasType areasType and boolean isDetectAreas
  • added new property in the RecognitionSettings class that indicates the table exists on the image
  • added new property in the RecognitionResult class: recognitionCharactersList
  • used compressed OCR ML model and reducing the packet size

  • added enum AreasType
  • added property: ArrayList<char[]> recognitionCharactersList to the RecognitionResult class
  • added property: boolean linesFiltration = false to the RecognitionSettings class

Usage Example

import static java.lang.System.out;

import java.awt.Rectangle;

import com.aspose.ocr.AsposeOCR;
import com.aspose.ocr.License;
import com.aspose.ocr.RecognitionResult;
import com.aspose.ocr.RecognitionSettings;
import com.aspose.ocr.SaveFormat.Format;

public class App {
       public static void main(String[] args) {

        // set license    

        boolean resLicense = License.isValid();
        out.println("License is :" + resLicense);

        // Create api instance
        AsposeOCR api = new AsposeOCR();

        String img= "img.png";		
		// recognize table
        RecognitionSettings settings = new RecognitionSettings();	
		RecognitionResult result = api.RecognizePage(file, settings);
		// get probabilities for the first character
		for(int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
		// get lines coordinates from image
		 ArrayList<Rectangle> res = api.getTextAreas(resFile.getFile(), AreasType.LINES, true);
		// print first line coordinates
