Hi !

I need to use OCR on Windows Phone 7 but i cannot find any  OCR library support it . I want to know this library can be used like OCR engine or not . I really need OCR for my project on windows phone 7. If allowed to modify project , I could write more function and implement  OCR in this library . Can anybody give me the answer ? .

Thanks so much !

As far as i know, there's no native .NET OCR engines. In theory, you could use any OCR SDK that worked for Win CE (as long as WP7 is based on it), but in practice - i haven't seen any working solution yet and all OCR applications for WP7 that i've seen were based on cloud services. I can point you to some ready to go cloud solutions if you'd change your mind about web API.
