Need to read scanned data through PHP

P: 14

I am looking for a script/software in PHP which would help me to read a scanned document. Something similar to OCR functionality of the scanner. But, I need to integrate it in my PHP module.

Any help would be appreciated :)

If I understand you correctly you want to convert an image (a scanned document) to text.
PHP has many capabilitie to edit images but as far as I know analyzing them to find text is not one of them. I'v seen some programs doing this.
But I don't think you can do it with PHP.
You may need to use an external program to do this job.

I don't know of any offhand, but you might look for an OCR program on your server platform that can work in command-line mode. Then, it would just be a matter of executing it from PHP. I doubt (although I may be wrong) that you're likely to find an OCR app that integrates into PHP.

Sorry for the late reply and thanx for the responses :) The requirement is changed fortunately. But the new one is tricky too :)

I will have to fire scan functionality on a button click and save scanned image on server.

Hi Sandeep,

I have the same requirement. I got any solution to scan images in server. I want to save all sub images from a scanned image with the help of PHP code.
