In my project i am using Abbyy cloud ocr for scan images.Now font information is also required for our project requirements.

I am using "processImage" method in web service to get xml of scan images (which contains text). My code is

var url = string.Format("http://cloud.ocrsdk.com/processImage?language={0}&exportFormat={1},{2}", language, "txt", "xml");

How to find font names in xml returned by cloud ocr ?

Unfortunately, there is no font support in Cloud OCR SDK yet. Please vote for the feature request: http://forum.ocrsdk.com/questions/3693/feature-request-font-info-in-xml. Hope it will be implemented in the nearest future.

Please consider using FineReader Engine that supports this feature. You сan find the detailed information on this product here: http://www.abbyy.com/ocr_sdk/.

Hi,

We are happy to inform you that this functionality has been recently implemented. Now it is possible to get information about the paragraph and character styles in the XML export format. For this please use the xml:writeFormatting parameter of the processImage or processDocument methods and set it to true (by default it is false).
