BlinkID SDK supports the following documents and features:



  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and detection of the standard

    Machine-Readable Zone (MRZ) according to ISO/IEC 7501 standard from International Identity documents (i.e. passports, ID cards…)

  • Barcode detection, recognition and parsing for the following identity documents:  

    USA driving license, Canadian driving license, Nigerian driving license

  • Barcode detection and recognition (no parsing implemented) for the following barcode standards: QR, PDF417, Compact PDF417, PDF417 Truncated, Code39, Code 39 extended, Code128, UPC A, UPC E, UPC C, EAN 13, EAN 8, EAN 128, ITF-14
  • Document detection for all ISO 7810 standard ID1, ID2 and ID3 standard cards

(no OCR, only document detection and image capturing)

 

*Microblink only supports ISO 7810 standard ID1, ID2 and ID3 documents. Paper ID documents, booklets and other non-standard documents are not supported.

**Scanning performed on barcodes or standardized MRZ lines has much higher accuracy level compared to floating OCR on non-standard documents.
