In this episode of Inside Windows Platform, we talked with Ivan Stojiljkovic, the Dev Lead of the OCR team at Microsoft.

OCR is acompelling developer scenario which can empower all sorts of useful mobile apps. Microsoft has been developing OCR functionality for its apps for some time now. In order to get real world data, the OCR team first published their code as part of the Bing Translator app, which gave them extensive data, allowing them to deliver near real-time translation of any camera captured text.

Now, the OCR team is giving you the ability to leverage the power of character recognition to your applications. The OCR team has published their libraries to NuGet, for you.
