OCR & Semitic-language diacritics
- Does anyone know of any Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that can recognize the diacritical marks typically used for transliterating Semitic-language texts (Arabic, Akkadian, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc.)?
- I believe ABBYY FineReader would work for you. Its language support is very good. I've used it even to OCR Hebrew texts (i.e. Modern Hebrew; I don't think it can handle vowel points), and the results are respectably good, if not perfect:
