I'm using ABBY OCR https://www.abbyy.com/en-us/ to read PDF files and parse some fields from it and then using C# code, I store the data in the database.
This is what I want to do:
I have some PDF files but they're forms. As it is now, we download the form and fill the form. For example, fill first name, last name, address, etc. Then we scan it or fax it whatever.
I want to read the entire PDF file and display it in a web page. Along with the image (if it exists). Then, user fills the form online. For example, read the PDF file using OCR and display the same exact file on a web page, then save the entire form, print, etc.
Is this doable?
Edit: Maybe I should have the same fields the PDF form has on a web page. User fills the fields and somehow I plug those field values into the PDF?
Edit: I've attached a sample PDF form i like to process. i-765.pdf
