Known limitations for OCR?

Post by Peter2 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 9:14 am

Version 8.0.333

I have a PDF, 88 MB, 178 pages DIN A4, coloured, 300 dpi, scanned from computer-printed pages.

The OCR function (German, Accuracy: High) ran up to page 143/178 and then there was no progress. Progress bar was moving, CPU was running for full load of one CPU, RAM was no problem, but it stayed on same page for two hours.

Are there some limitations or recommendations (e.g. max. 100 pages)?

BTW:

Running OCR in two steps (page 1-90, 91 - 178) brings fine results.

Hello Peter,

We are not aware of such an issue, also our products definitely do not have such limits!

Is it possible to send us a copy of that file to support@tracker-software.com
so we can investigate the reason for that problem?

Regards.

Sorry Dimitar

my fault. Seem to be a problem by incident. I should have tried again before posting - and runs fine now.
