Receipt SDK ModuleThe ReceiptCOM library is an SDK that gives your application an easy way to extract data from Receipts. Using the library, the integrator can detect a paper insertion to the scanner, scan the receipt, process the image and get the different data fields from the card.
ReceiptCOM may work as a stand-alone SDK or integrate with ScanW SDK, thus giving a complete solution to scan receipts and driver license.
Retrieving information from receiptRetrieving the data from a receipt involves 3 steps:
- Loading the internal image by scanning the receipt.
- Processing the internal image – use ProcessReceipt to activate the receipt analyzer on the scanner’s internal image.
- Retrieve the data – use GetReceiptData function to retrieve the detected data.
Using ReceiptCOM with other librariesReceiptCOM SDK provides a complete and independent solution for scanning receipts. This SDK can also integrate with ScanW SDK (that analyze driver’s license, ID cards and passports) and expand its capabilities to cover receipt reading. It can also be integrated with the ChequeCOM to and/or BizCOM to add check reading and business cards reading capabilities. In fact, all SDK modules are designed to share most of their files. For example, when using more then one module you may control the scanner either using ReceiptCOM (using ScanToFile function) or using the scanning library SlibEx that is encapsulated in ScanW (using the function ScanToFile) or using ChequeCOM (using ScanToFile function). All SDK modules will actually run the same code eventually. The only motivation to this redundancy is the will to keep ReceiptCOM as independent library.
To work with two libraries (or in other words, to add a receipt detection capability to the any other library) you must install both SDK modules to the same directory and register the relevant DLLs.
