Re: OCR Software that works?
said by tekmunki:First WatchOCR compared with ABBYY or OmniPage WatchOCR looses hands down. WatchOCR I would have many unrecognizable words. The others have near 100% recognition rate. Doing searches for common terms in my document management system, when using WatchOCR the number of hits was lower.

WatchOCR: A series of Linux scripts. Does not process 2,000 files without intervention
I'm about to add a WatchOCR box as a scanning destination for a shared copier- What 'intervention' did it need?
Second, rotation didn't seem to work properly. Maybe this is related to the hanging processes? I would see many messages about detected orientation but the output files weren't recongized.
WatchOCR has a setting for max processes, I had it set to 4. After a while when issuing the command ps aux I would see process that had been running for over 12 hours and low CPU use. I would have to kill these processes for the OCR process to continue.
I installed WatchOCR on Ubuntu 10.10, not using the LiveCD. Maybe the LiveCD doesn't have these issues, but I needed FTP server support.
