Quick Start

Once you've installed, download that image. You can use any other image containing simple text at 300dpi or higher. Now run the following code snipped to recognize text from your image:

var dv = require('dv');
var fs = require('fs');
var image = new dv.Image('png', fs.readFileSync('textpage300.png'));
var tesseract = new dv.Tesseract('eng', image);
