OCR support for Bengali language

Post by Jajkoski » Thu May 14, 2015 3:31 pm

I have installed PDFXCHANGE VIEWER v. 2.5 (Build 312.11) on my computer. However I need the OCR support for the language - Bangali. This is the world's fourth most popular language and Tracker software suite has OCR support for far less used languages. The OCR support algorithm for Bengali is well established - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 0397000782
Please advise when you are able to offer Bengali as an OCR language.

Hello Jajkoski,

Thanks for your post. I've asked a colleague from the dev team (Victor) to take a look at this and we will investigate if we can add Bengali language support for the OCR Tool.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Jajkoski,

Just spoke with a developer working on the OCR and we can't add Bengali OCR in this build, but we will see if we can add it for the next one.
I've also created a ticket in our internal system:
#3065: OCR: Support for Bengali language
So that we can keep track of this.

Regards,
Stefan

Thanks Stefan. Can you share an estimate of when the next build is going to be released?

Hi Jajkoski,

We're looking at releasing build 313 in a few weeks, if all goes well, but as Stefan mentioned, it's too late to include this into build 313. We haven't yet decided on the full content of build 314, so we can't really advise on any time frame for a while yet.

Cheers,
