A wrapper for the Tesseract OCR engine
A small PHP >=5.3 library that makes working with the open source Tesseract OCR engine easier.
You need a working Tesseract installation. For more information about installation and adding language support, see Tesseract’s README.
$ composer require ddeboer/tesseract:1.0
tesseract binary is in your path, just do:
use Ddeboer\Tesseract\Tesseract; $tesseract = new Tesseract();
Otherwise, construct Tesseract with the path to the binary:
$tesseract = new Tesseract('/usr/local/bin/tesseract');
Get version and supported languages information:
$version = $tesseract->getVersion(); $languages = $tesseract->getSupportedLanguages();
Perform OCR on an image file:
$text = $tesseract->recognize('myfile.tif');
Optionally, specify the language(s) as second argument:
$text = $tesseract->recognize('myfile.tif', array('nld', 'eng'));
And specify Tesseract’s page seg mode as third argument:
$text = $tesseract->recognize('myfile.tif', null, Tesseract::PAGE_SEG_MODE_AUTOMATIC_OSD);
