Processing Text That Accompanies a Linear Barcode

Jan 02, 2020
Processing Text That Accompanies a Linear Barcode

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader v7.3 introduces some new barcode processing features and it now also provides a capability to use OCR technology to process the human readable text that accompanies a linear barcode image. Accompanying text enables users to compare the result from barcode decoding to the OCR result.

Features

  • OCR processing and barcode decoding supported for all linear barcodes
  • Supported platforms include Windows and Linux

How to Read Accompanying Text Alongside a Linear Code

The accompanying text feature is divided into two major processes: text extraction and text recognition.

Text Extraction

The text OCR feature ensues after successful barcode decoding occurs. If the text OCR capability is enabled, Dynamsoft Barcode Reader will then extract text from the area or zone set by the user. If the user does not specify one, Dynamsoft Barcode Reader will analyze the area above and below the barcode. It will quadrilaterally and intelligently pick a line of text block. 

Text Recognition

For each block of text that is extracted, it is recognized using a trained neural network model. The recognized character is then the result of this recognition.

Licensing

Accompanying Text is integrated into the Windows Edition and Linux Edition of Dynamsoft Barcode Reader and requires no extra licenses.
