Is it possible to set a "clipping window" for recognition process, if I know the area of interest for me?

You can always crop your image on your side and pass it to the processImage method.

Also if the region you want to recognize contains the text only, you can use the processTextField method and specify the coordinates in its region parameter.

Well, it is relatively easy to crop single page .png file ( in my case ), but can be tricky enough for multi-page .pdf.
processTextField (as far as I can understand from documentation)is well suited for single-value field record, and will not retain text's geometry...

In ABBYY FineReader Engine it is also easy to do by adding text blocks manually. This feature is not implemented in ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK.
