Saaspose.OCR supports text extraction from whole images and a specific block of an image as well. There are two approaches to extract the text from images such as documents, PDFs, or TIFF images. The first method involves the process of file uploading on Saaspose storage using Saaspose.OCR REST API. Once the file is uploaded on the storage, you can extract the text from image using Saaspose.OCR examples in PHP. The second method is that you can directly extract image text from files on your local system using Saaspose.OCR REST API and SDKs without saving the file to Saaspose storage. Using the file path or stream, you can extract text from images or you may choose to extract text from a specific block of an image. The file is sent through request stream to Saaspose servers, processed and the output is sent back as response stream and the file is not saved on Saaspose storage. Saaspose.OCR API also supports character recognition for multiple languages such as English, French and Spanish.
