Xamarin Scanner SDK

Cross-platform OCR Text Recognition SDK for Xamarin applications

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

The Scanbot Xamarin OCR package enables your mobile app to transform document scans into editable PDF-files. Implementation takes up one business day due to the ready-to-use interface, which can be customized to the CI. The Xamarin OCR library is available from package I upwards and compliant with the GDPR, CCPA, and DSGVO. The high accuracy is based on many improvements and machine learning algorithms in combination with Tesseract 4.

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

Documentation, release notes and example projects for the Xamarin Text Recognition (OCR) are accessible on GitHub. The SDK can be downloaded on NuGet as “ScanbotSDK.Xamarin” in version 3.1.
