Loading an Image

SmartZone ICR/OCR perform recognition on 1-bit black and white images. If asked to process a color or grayscale image, SmartZone ICR/OCR will internally binarize the image before processing.

SmartZone ICR/OCR have no native ability to load an image from a file. Typically, Accusoft's ImagXpress component, provided with SmartZone ICR/OCR, will be used to open image files. ImagXpress can also be used to control the binarization of color images to make them black and white.

Streaming Information

SmartZone ICR/OCR provide the ability to read and write to a stream using the ReadFromStream (ICR: ReadFromStream; OCR: ReadFromStream) and WriteToStream (ICR: WriteToStream; OCR: WriteToStream) methods.
