Hi you can use the MODI(Microsoft Office Document Imaging) located at MDIVWCTL.DLL
you have to add a reference to this COM
1- Create a Document Instance and Assign an Image File

_MODIDocument = new MODI.Document(); 
_MODIDocument.Create(imagefilepath);

2-Call the OCR Method

_MODIDocument.OCR(_MODIParameters.Language, 
                  _MODIParameters.WithAutoRotation, 
                  _MODIParameters.WithStraightenImage);

first parameter (The Language)
2nd parameter (using autorotation) true/false
3rd parameter (StraightenImage) true/false

You can use OnOCRProgress Event to tracking the image proccess progress

to get the data you create

MODI.Image image = (MODI.Image)_MODIDocument.Images[i];
 MessageBox.Show(image.Layout.Text);

Hi

Try this

Bitmap image = new Bitmap("eurotext.tif");
tessnet2.Tesseract ocr = new tessnet2.Tesseract();
ocr.SetVariable("tessedit_char_whitelist", "0123456789"); // If digit only
ocr.Init(@"c:\temp", "fra", false); // To use correct tessdata
List<tessnet2.Word> result = ocr.DoOCR(image, Rectangle.Empty);
foreach (tessnet2.Word word in result)
    Console.WriteLine("{0} : {1}", word.Confidence, word.Text);

For more details see this link

i am v.thankful to you both. i will take help from you in the project completion.

I hope the technology doesn't get too good, the image fuzzed text validation box to prevent reading text from images is unreadable enough as it is.

please continue helping me, where ever you get nay ocr with coding........
