VB.Net Code to Get You Started
using System; using IronOcr; //.. var Ocr = new AutoOcr(); var Result = Ocr.Read(@"C:\path\to\image.png"); Console.WriteLine(Result.Text);
Imports System Imports IronOcr '.. Dim Ocr = New AutoOcr() Dim Result = Ocr.Read("C:\path\to\image.png") Console.WriteLine(Result.Text)
IronOCR is unique in its ability to automatically detect and read text from imperfectly scanned images and PDF documents. The AutoOCR Class provides the simplest (though not always fastest) way to extract text from images and documents - because it will automatically correct and sharpen low resolution scans, remove background noise, skew, distortion and perspective as well as enhancing resolution & contrast.
Also see the AdvancedOCR class for more granular developer control.
OCR Images to Text in VB.Net Applications
One or multi pages can be sent to IronOCR. You'll receive all text, barcode, & QR content as a result. Add OCR functionality to .Net Console, Web, or Desktop Apps. Images can be submitted as PDF, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TIFF.See a Tutorials
OCR with Fast & Accurate Results
The Optical Character Recognition software views content in multiple font styles for accurate text OCR. Use rectanlge read regions to improve speed and accuracy. Multi-core multi threading improves OCR reading speeds.Object Reference Documenation
Image Processing for Imperfect Scan Recognition
What really makes IronOCR special is its ability to read badly scanned documents. Its unique pre-processing library reduces background noise, rotation, distortion and skewed alignment as well as simplifying colours and enhancing resolution & contrast. Iron’s AutoOCR and Advanced OCR settings provide developers with the tools to achieve the best possible results, every time.Learn More

Data Exported Directly to Your VB.Net Application
IronOCR outputs content as plain text and barcode data. An alternative structured data object model allows developers to receive all content in the format of structured Headings, Paragraphs, Lines, Words and Characters for input directly into .Net applications.Learn More
