OCR Settings

Using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) settings, you can select a faster processing mode and choose one or more languages to use for OCR processing. Choosing the fast mode recognition option increases the processing speed. However, fast mode is not as accurate as the standard processing mode and is most appropriate for documents with a simple layout, and good scanning and print quality.

OCR processing must be activated before you can use this processing option. For more information, see Activating OCR.

OCR settings are managed per project using the Project Settings Manager. When the OCR Extension is activated, the OCR license code is displayed, you can check the number of remaining pages you can process for the month, select recognition languages, and select whether fast mode is selected.

To enable the fast mode recognition option:

  1. In the Project Client, select your project tab. On the left task pane in Other Tasks, click Edit Project Settings.

  2. Select the OCR tab. The OCR page displays.

  3. Select Fast Mode, and then click OK.

    Note: Selecting the fast mode option increases the processing speed of the OCR, but results will be less accurate.

To change the recognition language:

  1. In the Project Client, select your project tab. On the left task pane in Other Tasks, click Edit Project Settings.

  2. Select the OCR tab. The OCR page displays.

  3. Click Change in the OCR Options section. The Recognition Language dialog box opens.

  4. Select the desired language or languages. The current language is displayed in the text box at the top of the dialog box. Additional language selections are added to the text box, separated by commas. To remove a language from the list, clear the box next to the language.

    For more information about language support, see Supported Languages.

    Note: Some languages are not supported in combination. For example, OCR processing may not process some languages when also combined with Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. If you have more than one recognition language selection and receive an error when trying to process, you may need to select only the primary language for the particular item.

  5. Click OK to save changes.
