OCR Progress and Performance Tracking

The IronTesseract object has an OcrProgress event that can be used to track OCR progress. We can track progress using the OcrProgresEventsArgs object sent to this event after any page of OCR text has finished reading.

This is useful in GUI application, Web Applications and CLI alike to keep users informed of how long they may need to wait.

How to Track OCR Progress and Performance

  1. Install an OCR library for OCR performance and progress tracking.
  2. Build a IronTesseract object.
  3. Verify progress using a OcrProgress instance.
  4. Add the necessary Tesseract parameters and the photo path into the object.
  5. Apply all necessary image-processing methods.
  6. Use the Read method to read text from a OcrInput object.
