Moscow, Russia, April 23, 2003 – ABBYY ®, a leading developer of document recognition and linguistic technologies, today announced the availability of new modules for ABBYY FineReader® Engine 6.0, a software development toolkit (SDK) for integrating ABBYY’s FineReader OCR, ICR, OMR and barcode recognition technologies into Windows applications.

ABBYY FineReader Development Tools: Engine and Scripting Edition
FineReader Engine 6.0 SDK provides developers with the tools to access the core functionality, or “engine,” of ABBYY’s award-winning FineReader applications. With this SDK, developers have the flexibility to either integrate FineReader recognition technology into existing applications or build powerful new applications from scratch. FineReader Engine 6.0 includes a set of Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) as well as open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that fully conform to the Component Object Model (COM) standard and can be easily used by C/C++, Visual Basic, Visual Studio.NET, Delphi, or any other development tools supporting COM components.

This solution enables system integrators, VARs, service bureaus or corporate IT developers to fully customize or modify ABBYY’s FineReader 6.0 OCR software and integrate it into other applications by writing a few lines of code—eliminating the need to develop applications from scratch.
