Hi Experts

I have downloaded a nice ocr app called "cuneiform" and would like to get it to convert a whole bunch of correspondence images (stored as .jpg's) to a memo field in a database.

For now, I just want to know whether its possible to control 'Cuneiform's functions - ie 'recognise' and  'save as' from within a VB6 app?
it's downloadable at http://www.brothersoft.com/cuneiform-ocr-download-4384.html
Many thanks
Peter

With high  likliness this is a Package witha C Api and you can use such in VB6 without too much hassle. I can  not tell  if that software even does offer an COM interface, but that should be documented somewhere..

Ok, thanks for those guidelines - i'd still be far from understanding any of it but appreciate the guidelines. Pl do let me know whether there are any OCR components for vb6 too, as that may just end up being a whole lot easier. Thansk
