I've been looking for a native Java OCR engine and couldn't find any. Is this one just a wrapper as well? How is it compared to TessJ or TessJract? For i'm using OCR in Java here through web API and it kinda does the job for me, but i'd like to know whether aspose is pure Java and what other Java alternatives are out there?
