    Using OCR

    OCR supports the following use methods:

    • Try product features with Tencent Cloud OCR Demo
      If you are not a developer and have no coding background, use this method to try OCR services.
      This method is not suitable for development. Only one image can be recognized at a time.

    • Make OCR API calls with API 3.0 Explorer
      If you are a beginner developer who has a basic understanding of HTTP requests and API calls, use this method to try OCR services.
      This method allows you to make API calls, verify signatures, generate SDK codes, access APIs, etc.

    • Make OCR API calls with SDKs
      If you are an experienced developer, you can call OCR APIs with SDKs complied by Tencent Cloud, which support languages such as Python, Java, PHP, Go, NodeJS, .Net, etc. You can download the SDK in the corresponding service documentation or through the SDK Center.
