I need to implement an additional functionality on a web site that is already allowing upload of images, pdf and general scan documents. The additional function simple need to identity some of the text from the upload images or pdf into a database, so that I can use these data.
The website is written in php 5, running on a shared linux web hosting service with MySQL db.
any suggestion on where i can find a framework, sdk somewhere that can do a good job without a lot of development time? I found openocr but the review of it hasn't been great. It is preferably open source but not absolutely necessary.
