Imports Bytescout.PDFExtractor ' This example demonstrates the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to extract text into csv ' from scanned PDF documents and raster images. ' To make OCR work you should add the following references to your project: ' "Bytescout.PDFExtractor.dll", "Bytescout.PDFExtractor.OCRExtension.dll". Class Program Friend Shared Sub Main(args As String()) ' Create Bytescout.PDFExtractor.CSVExtractor instance Dim extractor As New CSVExtractor() extractor.RegistrationName = "demo" extractor.RegistrationKey = "demo" ' Load sample PDF document extractor.LoadDocumentFromFile("sample_ocr.pdf") ' Enable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) ' in .Auto mode (SDK automatically checks if needs to use OCR or not) extractor.OCRMode = OCRMode.Auto ' Set the location of OCR language data files extractor.OCRLanguageDataFolder = "c:\Program Files\Bytescout PDF Extractor SDK\ocrdata" ' Set OCR language extractor.OCRLanguage = "eng" ' "eng" for english, "deu" for German, "fra" for French, "spa" for Spanish etc - according to files in "ocrdata" ' Find more language files at https://github.com/bytescout/ocrdata ' Set PDF document rendering resolution extractor.OCRResolution = 300 ' You can also apply various preprocessing filters ' to improve the recognition on low-quality scans. ' Automatically deskew skewed scans 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddDeskew() ' Remove vertical or horizontal lines (sometimes helps to avoid OCR engine's page segmentation errors) 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddVerticalLinesRemover() 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddHorizontalLinesRemover() ' Repair broken letters 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddDilate() ' Remove noise 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddMedian() ' Apply Gamma Correction 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddGammaCorrection() ' Add Contrast 'extractor.OCRImagePreprocessingFilters.AddContrast(20) ' (!)
