Usage Examples

This function should be used when text is placed as an image which makes it impossible to extract the text using standard methods. In this case you will use this function to scan the image and save all the recognized characters.

Make sure to keep in mind that you may not get the maximum accuracy sometimes. It depends on the image quality, text size and some other characteristics.
