OCR - Registered Trademark Symbol

Post by Techteam » Tue May 11, 2021 9:57 pm


I tried to OCR a template document to make it editable
however the logo has a registered trademark symbol and when you OCR this document the symbol becomes an asterisk (*)

is there any way to fix that ? I tried Low, medium, and high Accuracy but it does not change, if I select Auto accuracy then the symbol becomes a number 8

I have attached the original document for review

Hello Techteam,

No OCR is perfect, and the quality of that ® symbol is really low in the image:

(The above is zoomed at 800%).

So the solution for you could be to OCR your file and then manually touch up the result by replacing the (*) or 8 with the actual ® symbol. On the image below I've selected the "Edit content tool" and edited the recognized text to correct it:
Kind regards,
