Environment: both Cloud OCR SDK and On premise SDK

I have case whether user has existing image PDF documents, file size ranging from 100Kb to 980MB which they need to convert to Text PDF.

I would like to know, what is the file size limitation that ABBYY OCR can process? Both cloud and on premise version?

What is the correct API/ method to call to process such huge file PDF document?

Now there are the following limitations:

  1. a file size should be less than 30Mb. If you need to process multipage document exceeding this limit, use sequential calls of submitImage and call the processDocument method after that;
  2. to recognize PDF files that are protected with password on opening/rasterizing/text copy, it is necessary to provide the password, other password types are ignored;
  3. ABBYY technologies are not able to open images larger than 32512*32512 pixels;
  4. an application with positive balance are allowed to upload the images/pages up to double rest of the available credits.

Thanks for your reply! Page count per source image PDF file has no limitation too?
