This add-on uses the free and open source Tesseract OCR engine,
to perform optical character recognition on an image file, PDF,
JPG, TIF or other, without the need to open it. It also uses
wia-cmd-scanner to be able to access WIA enabled scanners and
perform OCR to a paper document. In the NVDA menu, Preferences,
a TesseractOCR section is added, where you can configure the
languages to be used in recognition and the type of documents to
be recognized. With the exception of English and Portuguese,
which are already included in add-on, the other languages will
be downloaded and installed when you select a language that does
not already exist in the add-on. Note that as the number of
selected recognition languages increases, the OCR process will
take longer. We therefore recommend that you use only the
languages you need. Note also that the quality of recognition
may vary according to the order of languages. Therefore, if the
recognition result is not satisfactory, you may want to try
another language ordering.
The default commands are: Windows+Control+r - to recognize the
selected document; Windows+Control+w - to scan and recognize a
document through the scanner.
Then just wait that ocr.txt opens with the recognized text. If
you want to preserve the recognized text, don't forget to save
the document under another name and in another location, as all
files in the temporary directory are deleted at the start of the
next OCR process!
This commands can be modified in the "Input gestures" dialog in
the "TesseractOCR" section.
This add-on includes an automatic update feature. The check for
a new version will be executed everytime NVDA is loaded. If you
want this, go to NVDA, Preferences, Options and in the add-on
category check the check box.
• In some systems it is possible that add-on do not work due to
a comtypes error... In some machines it is enough going to the
temp folder, and deleting the comtypes_cache folder.
• When selecting the "Various" option in the "Documents type"
combobox, the recognized text probably appear with many blank
lines This is a known problem with Tesseract, and, without
consumming lots of processing time, I haven't yet found any
solution. But, I still haven't given up!
