7944Re: [NTO] Proofing OCR text => What is an efficient/tolerable method?
- Apr 23, 2008OCR programs differ in their accuracy.
You want to start with the most accurate OCR engine you can get, that
means less correcting of the results.
There are several sites which compare performance on OCR engines.
Try to find one that "learns" as you correct.
I know of no way to speed it up, but Pagis has a good program that will
walk you through the scan and the text at the same time.
I have had trouble using Pagis on Vista, so I also have ABBYY fine
reader and Simple OCR installed, "Simple" is perhaps the least accurate
I have seen yet.
There are some really accurate OCR engines, but they have high prices
