Correcting OCRd Text

Post by JlgBlg » Fri Apr 13, 2012 8:05 pm

First of all, the OCR feature is excellent, I use it frequently; however, like any OCR, it makes mistakes in the text recognition. Is there a way to correct the OCRd text in the PDF? I have PDF-XChange PRO Version: 4.0189. The PDFxChange Viewer version is 2.5 (build 201.0).

Thanks,
Jerry

I'm glad you are getting good use out of the OCR feature!

As for editing the results, at the moment it is not possible although this is a feature we anticipate adding during some point in product development. In fact we do have it slated as one of the features for the OCR plugin for the new viewer, but it may not make it in to the very first release (there are a few higher priorities to finish first).
