Ionic Scanner SDK

Scanbot Ionic OCR plugin for mobile apps

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

Implementation takes up one business day due to the ready-to-use UI, which can be easily customized to the CI. The Ionic OCR plugin is available from package I to III and complies with the standards of the GDPR, DSGVO, and CCPA.

  • 100+ supported languages
  • ML-based preprocessing
