I am trying to figure out if it is possible to use Paradox to make a 
receipt storing program (for myself) that includes the image and 
utilizes OCR to capture the receipt information.

I have a Fujitsu ix500 (incredible machine) and it has an app called 
ScanReceipt. Basically you load up all your recipts and it scans/OCR's 
each receipt and imports to a database.It uses AbbyFineReader for OCR.

When you are on a record, it has the OCR'd info and displays the image. 
At that point you can edit the record to correct wrong data.

The problem with it is that you cannot add tags for searching, and 
editing is annoyingly slow.

It does have an export to csv function which I tried and successfully 
imported to Pdox but then I have to match up the image etc.

What I would like to do within Pdox is:
1) scan the image and use OCR to capture data
2) display the record & the image on the form

Is there a way to scan/OCR within a Pdox form?
