Does anybody know of any free optical character recognition (OCR) SDKs or plugins?


  • I am working on a Windows Store app that requires optical character recognition (OCR). I have done multiple searches online for free SDKs for this, but all I could find were ones that were either not free or send the image to a service to do the character recognition. I want to do the character recognition locally in my app (or on the same device, I don't want to require an Internet or network connection), so a service (such as Bing OCR) will not work for me. Does anybody know of any free available SDKs that can do this? Thanks.
