What is new in this release?

We are proud to announce the new release of Aspose.OCR for .NET 2.5.0 . The biggest attraction of this month?s release is the improved licensing mechanism for OMR Template Editor Tool, shipped with Aspose.OCR for .NET API to create, manipulate & scan OMR templates against OMR sheets. The OMR Template Editor is a simple graphical tool, available with Aspose.OCR for .NET API in an executable format (.exe). There could be several usage scenarios however, the main purpose of the tool is to create & save OMR templates that in turn can be used to dynamically identify optical markers from a batch of scanned sheets. Whereas, the template itself is a simple XML file (.amr) in which the elements are defined in the form of XML nodes along with their dimensions, size, name and other properties. The OMR Template Editor allows to create the aforesaid XML through its UI without even having the knowledge of the XML structure. By default, the OMR Template Editor works in evaluation mode and restricts the recognition to not more than 3 elements per page and not more than 10 pages in total. If the limit is exceeded, the recognized value gets replaced with an error message similar to ?Trial mode. Recognition is not performed for more than 3 elements.?. In order to work in licensed mode, the OMR Template Editor allows to set a valid license through its Settings interface. The settings dialog can be triggered by clicking the Edit menu and then Settings. The snapshot on the blog announcement page shows the General tab of the Settings dialog, where license can be set using the Change License button. Once clicked, it will prompt to specify the location to the license file, and after validation, the status will be changed to Licensed. Moreover, the OMR Template Editor can also accept valid Aspose.OCR for Java & Aspose.Total for Java licenses. In order to set the Java licenses, one have to first change the mode to Java by clicking the Switch to Aspose.OCR for Java button, whereas the rest of the process to apply the license is same as of setting a .NET license with one change, that is: the OMR Template Editor also requires the location of Aspose.OCR.jar file to validate the license as shown in following illustration. This release includes plenty of new features as listed below
