Re: New version of TesseractOCR add-on


Ravindran V.S.
 

Hello,

Thank you for clarifying.
So, it will automatically pick the language in the selected language list In the order.
Mean-wile, I just encountered a new problem now, when I started my PC.
Once the Windows loaded, NVDA startup sound came, but no voice to speak. Tried to restart the NVDA few times with the shortcut key.(Ctrl+Alt+N), same result.
Then loaded alternative screen reader, and it announced " New version of TesseractOCR add-on is available; do you want to install? Yes/ No"
When I clicked "Yes" took a short while but NVDA did not restart. But the voice started to speak.
Repeated to restart NVDA,the result was as previous.
Then saw this link and updated via this download.
Now no issue.
Only this afternoon, before shutting the PC, I checked the checkbox to check for new updates in the TesseractOCR add-on settings in NVDA.
I use Windows 10 64bit; NVDA 2022.1; Vocalizer voices.
Also, the OCR results in Tamil language seems to be bit unclear.
I mean, after the OCR the results does not seems to be in an order to make the sentences meaningful.
And moving to them with the normal cursor is difficult. Have to use the Object navigation.
This is my initial experience. Wil give it more attempts and confirm.
Please advice if am I missing anything.
Thanks,
Ravi.
