Read hand and machine printed data off your forms. SmartZone SDKs make it easy to include the world's best character recognition in your application.

Just pass it an image clip, and SmartZone returns the characters. It's ideal for processing fields on forms, whether they were typed (OCR) or hand-printed (ICR).

Confidence values let you decide when an operator should review the results, and alternate characters help them quickly select the correct result.

SmartZone for .NET includes exclusive new technology that uses regular expressions, such as social security numbers or phone numbers, to improve accuracy even further. When you know the format of the expected data in any field, you can increase overall accuracy by specifying which characters can occupy each position.

Visit the Demo page to try SmartZone online or to install a demonstration program, or download the FormSuite SDK to compile and run sample code, and start developing your own forms processing solution.
