I think there will be a better OCR service. Now there are manypany are professional on OCR technology such as Yunmai Technology SimpleOCR and Abbyy and so on.

What is the best way and cheapest way to do OCR in the cloud?
I am also looking for an answer to your question also. I was talking to some developers recently who highly rated Abbyy Cloud OCR SDK for accuracy but at a high price ( Plans and Pricing ) You can do a limited try out yourself for free as a developer. The cost kicks in when you go into production mode - unless you are a student and you might qualify for Free OCR SDK for Students . Abbyypetition is OmniPage but they doesn't seem to offer a Cloud SDK only a native app API ( OmniPage CSDK | OCR Document Capture SDK | OCR for Developers | Nuance ) - but i've reached out to them to confirm. You can try out their SDK at Wee to OmniPage Cloud Service Portal! s . I also came across this review from last year - The Best Online OCR Software for Converting Images to Text and it looks like the answer might be OnlineOCR - SOAP and REST Cloud API . The 3-day free trial allows for 25 items a day for free. It's not clear who is behind the service however so i wouldn't send any sensitive documents to it. Update There is an Abbyy subscription package available on Azure that gives you 1 pages a month for free - ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK Service on Microsoft Azure Marketplace s .
Which companies are developing the best OCR software?
The quest for the best OCR is found all over Quora. The unique additional details about this question is How do their implementations relate to the state-of-the-art in OCR? When you consider what state-of-the-art in OCR is you will find that OCR is very boring and mature technology and as you can see with the most of the answers you have a hand full of leaders. As it has been repeated ABBYY is the leader OCR PDF Text Scanning Software & Automation Solutions - ABBYY s What makes the implementation of ABBYY better than anywhere else? They are innovative and they are using newer technologies with ABBYY Flexicapture you are not just doing a basic OCR of a page and exporting to a database or file system you are using artificial intelligence or business intelligence to classify identify and extract meaningful data that has purpose and can drive a process for aplete business solution. Here is a good read OCR and Data Capture Technologies for Machine Vision s This is no longer the OCR applications of old it is a new generation of applications that will remove the need for many full time employees doing the work that is now automated or requires very little intervention. Those resources can be put to work in other areas and hopefully add more value. So when considering the best OCRpany I suggest looking beyond the best OCR and start looking at who can provide a full solution and you will stille to the same answer ABBYY.
