GemBox.Pdf 1.7 Released with support for OCR

We have released a new version of our PDF component, Gembox.Pdf 1.7, that provides an easy and efficient way to read, merge, split, and process PDF files in .NET.

In this version, we added support for annotating PDF pages with hyperlinks and full support for interactive form fields that can now be created and flattened, and all field types can be filled in.

Additionally, we released a new utility component with support for optical character recognition (OCR) – GemBox.Pdf.Ocr.

With the combination of GemBox.Pdf.Ocr and GemBox.Pdf you can now read images or scanned PDFs and extract the text or save it to an editable PDF. You can find more information about how to use optical character recognition in our OCR example.
