Receipt OCR .NET

The .NET OCR SDK supports the receipt API for extracting data from receipts.

Using this sample receipt below, we are going to illustrate how to extract the data that we want using the OCR SDK.
sample receipt

Quick Start

using Mindee;
using Mindee.Input;
using Mindee.Product.Receipt;

string apiKey = "my-api-key";
string filePath = "/path/to/the/file.ext";

// Construct a new client
MindeeClient mindeeClient = new MindeeClient(apiKey);

// Load an input source as a path string
// Other input types can be used, as mentioned in the docs
var inputSource = new LocalInputSource(filePath);

// Call the API and parse the input
var response = await mindeeClient

// Print a summary of all the predictions
// System.Console.WriteLine(response.Document.ToString());

// Print only the document-level predictions
