Regula Document Reader (Android version)

Regula Document Reader SDK allows you to read various kinds of identification documents, passports, driving licenses, ID cards, etc. All processing is performed completely offline on your device. No any data leaving your device.

You can use native camera to scan the documents or image from gallery for extract all data from it.

We have provided a simple application that demonstrates the API calls you can use to interact with the DocumentReader Library. Just take me to the notes!

  1. Get trial license for demo application at (regula.license file).
  2. Clone current repository using command git clone
  3. Download and install latest JDK.

  2. Application ID is the same that you specified for license.
  3. Date and time on the device you are trying to run the application is correct and inside the license validity period.
  4. You are using the latest release of the SDK.
  5. You placed the license into the correct folder as described here How to build demo application (DocumentReader-sample/app/src/main/res/raw).
