Python module / library for Engine SDK

Hey ... I'd like to leverage the FineReader Engine SDK for OCR'ing PDFs and image files from a Python script. 

Do PY bindings exist? If not, what other languages should I be considering?

Thanks, Sam

    Hi Samuel

    My two cents;

    We've already tried to get a Python-binding without success, and are now using the Java-API from Python;

    In our case we used the Django REST Framework and created a Java REST-servlet running in Tomcat doing the trick.

    Although an official Python module that wraps FineReader Engine does not exist, a FineReader Engine code sample in Python for Windows is available. The code sample utilizes the comtypes package to load the Engine by means of COM, namely the OutprocLoader object.

    You can download the code sample here: https://share.abbyy.com/index.php/s/DK6jy6LEL87a903. Please refer to the ReadMe file provided with the code sample for steps to set it up correctly.
