Dot Matrix OCR

Can I read dot matrix printouts/scans in IronOCR?

Yes - accuracy does depend on the quality of the input image. Some pre-processing of the image can also help improve results, so we suggest this article which offers suggestions -

For deeper processing to achieve reliable OCR results, we recommend ImageMagick for .NET as a free and very well documented tool with filters comparable to Photoshop -

You may also try loading a dot matrix-specific language pack. We don't have this available but a great place to start is this project on GitHub -
