I need to integrate OCR engine in Xamarin Android, which allows extract text from driving licences via a phone camera.

Abbyy Real-time Recognition SDK below seems the best option. However, I cannot see Xamarin sdk.


1 How can I use RTR SDK in Xamarin Android? (Is there a Xamarin SDK from Abbyy?)

Unfortunately, we do not have any Xamarin samples for Real-Time Recognition SDK (only for ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK and for old Xamarin versions), but it is technically possible to use RTR in projects developed in Xamarin.

Xamarin sample for ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK does not support the latest version of Xamarin and it was not thoroughly tested, that’s why we provide it only on demand. Please let us know if you would like to try ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK instead of Real-Time Recognition SDK.

I* need it to run offline, does ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK require internet connection?

As you correctly pointed out ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK requires Internet connection for work therefore the ability to work offline is not available.
