To use EasyOCR, you will need to install it first. You can do this by running the following command:

Copy code

Once you have EasyOCR installed, you can use it to extract text from an image or PDF file by using the following code:

Copy code

import easyocr

reader = easyocr.Reader(['en'])  # Set English as the language

# Extract text from an image

image = '/path/to/image.jpg'

text = reader.readtext(image)

# Extract text from a PDF file

pdf_file = '/path/to/document.pdf'

text = reader.readpdf(pdf_file)

EasyOCR can also be used to extract text from multiple languages by specifying the languages you want to use when creating the Reader object. For example:

Copy code

reader = easyocr.Reader(['en', 'fr', 'de'])  # Set English, French, and German as the languages

You can find more information about EasyOCR and its usage in the documentation:
