Read Characters from ImagesAspose.OCR Cloud helps you read characters from images. You can recognize characters from BMP and TIFF formats as of now. In order to recognize the characters from these images, you need to pass the specific image name and the format to the Aspose.OCR Cloud PHP SDK.

Recognize Characters of Different LanguagesThe characters of different languages have different representations. If we combine the languages with the font types and styles, it makes a large set of characters to be recognized from an image. Aspose.OCR for Cloud handles this task very precisely. It can recognize text in English, French, and Spanish languages at the moment.

Optical character recognition involves handling font attributes. In order to make sense of a particular character from image, you need to know different font attributes as well. If font information is not available then it is not feasible to recognize a character from the image. Aspose.OCR Cloud API helps you recognize text and related font attributes accurately. These font attributes include font name, font size, font style (bold, italic, underline) etc.
