Document Camera OCR

TopOCR was developed for scanning books, magazines and newspapers with document cameras. It combines a full featured Image Editor and Word Processor with advanced multi-core image processing and three specialized OCR engines!. For document cameras, TopOCR provides a single-click Real-Time Document Camera Image Preview and Capture Dialog that makes it easy for you to properly position your documents for scanning.

TopOCR Is Built With Advanced Image Processing


TopOCR's advanced image processing software can fix problems caused by low contrast and low light conditions. When scanning with a document camera, you can use paper clips or your fingers to hold documents flat for better image capture and they can be automatically cropped from the image along with the background.

There's also no need to worry if your documents are upside down or sideways. TopOCR takes care of this with its Automatic Text Orientation Correction system that automatically transforms images to their correct orientation. TopOCR also provides a Column Straightening function to correct document skew and reduce page curvature from books, and is also equipped with a noise reduction filter for improved readability and OCR accuracy.

Super Resolution Image Capture with Document Cameras


TopOCR supports a Super Resolution image capture mode that uses Multi-Frame Super Resolution that gives a low resolution camera the ability to create a high resolution image! Super Resolution turns a 5.0 MP document camera into a 450 DPI high resolution document scanner!

Document Camera Accessible User Interface for Low Vision and Blind Users


For those who have difficulty reading printed material, TopOCR has a powerful, easy to use, multi-lingual Accessible OCR User Interface.

Select Your Choice of Output Formats and Tools


TopOCR's OCR text output can be saved in your choice of PDF/HTML/TXT/RTF file formats. It also has a multilingual Text To Speech System allowing you to convert your documents into high quality speech and save them as MP3 files. TopOCR's built-in Search Engine enables you to find any of your scanned documents instantly. TopOCR also provides an easy to use Image Processing Toolkit that can be accessed with just a few mouse clicks.


In addition to having the ability to save the OCR text output in PDF text format, TopOCR can also read and write multi-page PDF image files. TopOCR also supports "Scan to PDF", so you can quickly and easily archive any number of scanned images as a single high resolution, multi-page PDF image file. This function provides you with an easy method to convert your paper documents into a digital format for easier storage and access using either a scanner or document camera. You can also use TopOCR as a PDF to MP3 converter.

What About OCR Accuracy?


TopOCR can provide a very high level of accuracy with digital cameras, especially document cameras! To prove it to you, we've provided eight sample camera images ranging in size from 1.3 MP to 8.0 MP along with TopOCR's OCR processing results. TopOCR is capable of reading all 8 of these camera images with 100% accuracy, it is the only OCR program that can!

TAO OCR - Tesseract Accelerated OCR for Document Cameras


TAO OCR is a high performance multilingual recognition engine that has been integrated with the Tesseract OCR System. You can manually select between using either the TAO OCR classifier or the LSTM OCR classifier in the DocCam dialog or the Configure OCR Options dialog. Using a 4-core Intel 3.4GHz i7-6700 CPU, TAO OCR has an average reading speed of about 1.8 seconds per scan for a 5.0 MP document camera. This time includes all the preliminary stages of image processing and document layout analysis, making it among the fastest, most accurate document camera OCR software that there is!
