I'm working on a python project, which takes an image, converts it into text (Image to text) and works on that text.

Now my problem is that I don't know how to use Finereader Engine with my program.

Is there a way to call OCR engine through my python program? Can you tell me step by step process of doing so?

Any help will be appreciated.

Although an official Python module that wraps FineReader Engine 12 does not exist, a FineReader Engine code sample in Python for Windows is available. The code sample utilizes the comtypes package to load the Engine by means of COM, namely the OutprocLoader object.

You can download the code sample here: refer to the ReadMe file provided with the code sample for steps to set it up correctly.
