Every ByteScout tool contains example VBScript source codes that you can find here or in the folder with installed ByteScout product. ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK was made to help with OCR with mean dataset in VBScript. ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK is the SDK that helps developers to extract data from unstructured documents, pdf, images, scanned and electronic forms. Includes AI functions like automatic table detection, automatic table extraction and restructuring, text recognition and text restoration from pdf and scanned documents. Includes PDF to CSV, PDF to XML, PDF to JSON, PDF to searchable PDF functions as well as methods for low level data extraction.
VBScript, code samples for VBScript, developers help to speed up the application development and writing a code when using ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK. VBScript sample code is all you need: copy and paste the code to your VBScript application’s code editor, add a reference to ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK (if you haven’t added yet) and you are ready to go! Code testing will allow the function to be tested and work properly with your data.
ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK free trial version is available for download from our website. Free trial also includes programming tutorials along with source code samples.
' This example demonstrates the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to extract text ' from scanned PDF documents and raster images. ' Create TextExtractor object Set extractor = CreateObject("Bytescout.PDFExtractor.TextExtractor") extractor.RegistrationName = "demo" extractor.RegistrationKey = "demo" ' Load sample PDF document extractor.LoadDocumentFromFile("..\..\sample_ocr.pdf") ' Enable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) extractor.OCRMode = 1 ' OCRMode.Auto = 1 ' Set the location of OCR language data files extractor.OCRLanguageDataFolder = "c:\Program Files\Bytescout PDF Extractor SDK\ocrdata" ' Set OCR language ' "eng" for english, "deu" for German, "fra" for French, "spa" for Spanish etc - according to files in "ocrdata" folder. extractor.OCRLanguage = "eng" ' Find more language files at https://github.com/bytescout/ocrdata/tree/master/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) ' (!) You can use new OCRAnalyzer class to find an optimal set of image preprocessing ' filters for your specific document. ' See "OCR Analyser" example.
