New WX Pack component: The OCR helper!


Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Making your own OCR application has never been easier! Introduced in version of WX pack is the new OCR Helper component, which simplifies the use of the OCR component even further. Creating & loading templates, selecting parts of an image and even getting visual feedback after the OCR process are possible with this component.

Basic usage

To use the component, you simply drag it on the form, load an image and assign the OCR component. From there, you can start selecting parts of an image on which you want to start the OCR process. If needed you can even save these parts as a template, which you can re-use on other images. This is something you can commonly use on standard document types from where you always want to extract specific content.

With the AutoStart option, you can have the OCR process start immediately on every part you select, or you can select multiple parts and start them all at the same time. This will allocate all available OCR workers and enqueue the rest of the parts. Every time a worker is finished and becomes available, the next part will start.

Processing these parts will return feedback if enabled. This will highlight the words that do not meet the confidence limits set by the user with optionally 3 different colors for 3 different confidence levels.
