Getting started with a Preconfigured ABBYY FlexiCapture Project
ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 SDK can process fixed forms and flexible documents within ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 projects. To use this functionality, you must first create a project with the help of ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 and then use it in ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 SDK. For instructions on creating a project, see ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Help.
A FlexiCapture project is a single environment that unites collections of documents and the settings required to process them. Such collections of documents submitted for processing are called document batches. The project structure (including batches and documents) is reproduced in the FlexiCapture SDK objects. The most critical part of the project is a set of Document Definitions – fixed and flexible layouts – which are used for data extraction and which determine the quality of data obtained after processing.
In order to process documents, you add images to a batch in the project. During recognition, the program selects the Document Definition appropriate for the document pages, applies it, and performs data recognition in the regions found in the document with the help of the selected Document Definition. The processed data are then transferred to external files.
The basic steps you need to perform in order to recognize documents in a single preconfigured project and export the results are as follows:
