We are pleased to advise our developer toolkit clients that we have released the first fruits of our work on providing OCR functionality within our end user and developer toolkit products. The PDFX-OCR SDK Module is designed to function with our existing PDF-XChange PRO 2012 SDK, as a free SDK library enhancement, allowing developers to convert image based PDF files into fully searchable PDF’s files – whilst retaining the image based properties of the original file.
Developers interested in using the new, free, live PDF-X OCR Module must own a license for PDF-XChange PRO 2012 SDK, and have purchased in the last 9 months or have a minimum of 3 months left in their PRO 2012 SDK maintenance subscription. Developers can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with their licensing information to receive the password for the zipped Live PDF-X OCR DLL library to replace the demo files* in the PRO 2012 SDK. Live DLL file is available for download on our Developers Downloads page in the PDF-XChange PRO 2012 SDK file section.
