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.

Thanks

Here is an open source OCR class for PHP. But, this is not perfect:
http://www.phpclasses.org/package/2874-PHP-Recognize-text-objects-in-graphical-images.html

This is not in PHP but probably the best OCR resource you can use:

(you can just use this in PHP using exec())
