Web TWAIN SDK for Browser Apps

Programmers understand why web or "thin" client apps running in a browser can't easily connect to resources on your local PC or network (the local object model).

There are technical reasons and some sound security reasons. However, that doesn't help developers who want to connect to a local TWAIN document scanner from a browser-based app to capture paper documents and convert them to digital documents.

There are several solutions out there, but they are very, very expensive and come with awful licensing and maintenance conditions and costs.

We decided to solve this problem with newly developed technology, a much lower cost and no awful licensing and maintenance conditions and costs. Our new technology solution is disruptive in that it is low cost, easy to use and easy to license; totally different to what is currently available.

Our solution is a Web Twain Software Development Kit (SDK) that comes with all the code you will need plus a sample app plus twelve months of free support and updates. Only the developer is licensed, not the end users and there are no restrictions on the distribution of the runtime (built using our SDK). There is a single upfront fee (not an annual license that needs to be renewed each year) and a maintenance agreement (after the initial twelve months) is entirely optional.

The SDK includes the ability to scan, capture, modify images, OCR images, convert to PDF format and upload to the developer's application on the server. In short, everything you need when working from a browser to convert paper to digital and to capture and store the final document.

Our new Web Twain SDK is now available and has a demo program you can test.
