WordCaptureX 2.0 Text capture library which allows getting the words under the mouse cursor like Babylon does. Works in all browsers, Office windows, PDF documents and many others. WordCaptureX is not OCR based so it's very fast. Only 10 lines of code needed.
Description: TextCaptureX is a COM library that allows screen text extraction in Windows applications.It is accessible from any COM aware programming languages.
You can use it to extract text from any application that doesn't provide communication API's in order to feed another program. You can also use it to extract text from legacy systems, file directories, status bar messages, Windows error messages and more.
TextCaptureX is not OCR based so it's incredible fast. So it's convenient to embed it into dictionaries or translation tools. Imagine: your customer captures any text on screen, even when copy/paste is not available, with a hotkey and with a mouse click your dictionary pops up with the text already translated/explained.
We provide C++, Visual Basic and C# samples into the trial version in order to demonstrate the text capture library features.
Limitations:TextCaptureX cannot capture text from scanned documents, faxes and doesn't recognize PostScript/PDF/Adobe Acrobat fonts. Also it doesn't work in Windows 95, 98 and ME.
