In reply to: Paul 's message, "OCR and Word Question" on 20:46:40 05/01/03 Thu

Hi Paul,

For the OCR interface I decided for simplicity to return the results as a string list, ie, just the text, without formatting. The interface is generic to allow supporting more than one engine, and some engines, are not as good as others to preserve formatting. The Transym engine, is very good for text, but not conserve much formatting anyway.

The alternative would be to output in a file format that has more formatting capabilities like rtf (without going to the full extent of word files). This is beyond the original purpose though. If formatting is important, I would like at other engines that can ocr directly to more complex formats.

Best regards,
