Engine class

ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK engine via which all other objects may be created.

Creating the Engine and initializing the library may take up a lot of time, because all the resources need to be loaded. Therefore you should create this object (using the load method) only once, when initializing the main activity of your application, and reuse it every time you need to start a new recognition operation.
