TopOCR brings together a powerful collection of the latest neural net OCR and image processing technology for scanning books, magazines and newspapers with document cameras. It combines sophisticated real-time image processing with with state-of-the-art OCR technology together with an easy to use Image Editor and Word Processor/Spell Checker. It also provides a single-click Real-Time Document Camera Image Preview and Capture Dialog that makes real-time document positioning a snap!
TopOCR makes extensive use of multi-threading (running on multiple-CPUs) in the most CPU intensive portions of the OCR and image processing functions. To optimize multi-threading, TopOCR will automatically scale the number of threads the program uses based on the number of processors or "cores" on your PC.
With TopOCR you never have to worry if your documents are placed upside down or sideways. It automatically transforms images to the correct text reading orientation for every scan. In addition to text orientation correction, TopOCR can also automatically correct for geometric image distortion, such as page curvature, rotation, or perspective distortion. It can also fix problems caused by low contrast lighting and can automatically crop paper clips or your fingers from the image along with the background.
Automatic Document Image Dewarping with Neural Warp
Neural Warp is a revolutionary new convolutional neural network architecture that can analyze a document's page layout and can correct for page curvature and other geometric image distortions.
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. This interface provides a very easy to learn visually Accessible User Interface for Document Cameras.
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 400 DPI high resolution document scanner!
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!
