Hi I'm using the Android demo app to click VIN numbers and scan them for results using Cloud OCR but no results are returned. Do you suitable solution for recognizing VIN numbers?

I do not see any option to upload images other I could share few sample pics.

Regards, Vivek

Unfortunalely, this type of text (combination of different fonts) is too complex to be recognized completely. I can only extract the text like "1G1YY25A6957000DI" or "1.GLXL25R695700001" from the first image.

To extract the text I do the following:

1) invert the image (in general it is possible to recognize inverted text without any preprocessing, but in case of low text quality it's better to invert text on your side);

2) process image with the processTextField method (in this method it's necessary to specify the exact text coordinates); texttype=normal,handprinted. You can test it using our C# GUI sample:

Thanks AG. After inversion and extracting the text I'm getting a better response. I'll get back to you in case any further info is required.

Thanks Vivek
