"Version 13 of LEADTOOLS Document Imaging is a major release and has been
driven by the input of customers. As more and more applications require
advanced imaging routines and as the industry moves toward the idea of an
electronic and web-ready office document, LEAD's advances in imaging and
compression will be pivotal in leading the way."says Adrian Handley, general
manager, Developer Solutions.

LEADTOOLS new OCR Engine (available in Document Imaging Suite, or as a
plug-in) gives developers the ability to manage multiple pages of a document
at one time where the different pages are in different stages of processing
(segmentation vs. recognition), enable end users to verify or correct text
during the recognition process, process documents in two-page mode for
open-faced books and magazines, and more. LEADTOOLS Annotation enhancements
include the ability to alter the shape of certain annotations by holding
down the Shift key while drawing, the ability to move the name of annotation
objects, as well as support for multi-page annotation files.

Version 13 of Document Imaging includes all of the functionality in the
upgraded version 13 of LEADTOOLS Raster Imaging Pro toolkit, including major
enhancements to image processing, TWAIN, common dialogs, colour conversion,
compression in memory, and new file format support with PTOCA and Multi-page
