Open eVision Studio: Evaluation, prototyping and development tool
Open eVision Studio: Evaluation, prototyping and development tool

Open eVision Studio is the evaluation, prototyping and development tool of Open eVision. Its intuitive graphical user interface allows you to call and immediately see the result of any of eVision's functions. A scripting function generates the corresponding code, which can then be copied and pasted into your application. Open eVision Studio is free (when using Open eVision 2.0 and above) and can be downloaded to evaluate the performance of Open eVision.

EasyOCR Description
EasyOCR Description

EasyOCR is a font-dependent printed character reader based on a template matching algorithm. It has been designed to read any kind of short text (part numbers, serial numbers, expiry dates, manufacturing dates, lot codes, …) printed on labels or directly on parts.


Training
Training

EasyOCR requires training the font to be recognized. It is able to learn from sample images all possible characters to be read. This makes the recognition extremely flexible, fast and reliable. The training phase involves an interactive application used to show samples of the characters and allow the library to learn and store them in a font file. Moreover, EasyOCR provides the means for you to write your own, custom, font editor. EasyOCR also comes with three standard pre-learnt font files for the standard OCR-A, OCR-B and Semi fonts.
