With the version 1.10.9 a new function was implemented to run a subsequent action after the OCR and the creation of the destination file. This could take place at monitored folders as well as at the processing via web-services as C# or VB.NET scripts.
With the AutoOCR version 1.10.11 this possibility got further extended – Now it is also possible to use external DLL’s to run subsequent functions.
Via a checkbox it can be switched between source code (script) and DLL processing and via a selective list the DLL can be chosen.
For that there is a new interface action IAction2 which is inherited from IAction. For the DLL to be available to choose it has to be copied into the AutoOCR installation folder. All DLL’s which end with %NAME%.AutoOCRPlugin.dll get referenced. Please keep in mind that with the installation of AutoOCR as windows service no message boxes or other user interactions are possible and therefor can’t be used.
For the additional tab to show up and be configurable AutoOCR has to be started with the commandline parameter /ShowAction.
For the Abbyy OCR engine version 10 there are demo licenses for 30 days or 500 pages available – these can be requested from us
