View Full Version : [ubuntu] OCR applications ...

August 20th, 2011, 12:46 PM
Ok, this is not much of a problem, but a question of general knowledge, please answer as specifically as you can :

I have made the following observation:
When I used OCR applications, in my case ABBY FineReader and tesseract OCR, and I scanned a couple of pages, from ~70 I started to remark, that the results are getting more precise.

my question is: How can that be? I haven't trained the corresponding language ( Abby -> german, tesseract -> fraktur german ) and the program had no confirmation other than the results itself and the error count.

What is the trick here? :confused:

( Ok, false alarm, the pages had differences in the text orientation due to scanning... :) )
