Barcode Recognition in ABBYY FineReader & FlexiCapture
Recognition of Barcodes in ABBYY technologies
- the coordinates
- the characters
- character confidence information
- start/stop symbols of different barcode types,
for barcodes of type Code 39 the start/stop symbol is the asterisk “*”
- The barcode value can then be used for file naming.
- This feature is implemented in FlexiCapture projects
- With FineReader Engine, the developers can “cut” the page stream with custom code
- Separation in FineReader Server
- Separation in the ABBYY Scan Station (FineReader Server & FlexiCapture)
