Flutter Scanner SDK

Scanbot Cross-platform Flutter OCR for apps

The Scanbot Flutter Document Scanner SDK can be easily integrated into your existing Flutter projects within a few business days, turning a regular smartphone or tablet into a mobile text recognition device.

How can I add text recognition to a Flutter application?

Scanbot’s OCR Text Recognition Flutter Plugin can be integrated into your app within one business day as it contains a ready-to-use UI that can be adjusted to the CI. The Flutter OCR Scanner turns every standard document into an editable PDF-format and is available from package I to package III. As a stand-alone component, it is compliable with the GDPR, DSGVO, and CCPA.

  • 100+ supported languages
  • ML-based preprocessing
  • PDF sandwiching (text + image)
