Patterns can be used to improve the recognition of specific characters. Patterns can be trained in ABBYY FineReader or in ABBYY FineReader Server 14 and then applied to ABBYY FlexiCapture projects.
Extended Recognition with custom trained pattern can be used for:
texts set in decorative fonts
texts containing unusual characters (e.g. mathematical symbols)
long documents of low print quality (more than a hundred pages)
Patterns are only useful when the documents have:
the same font,
the same font size, and
the same resolution as the document used to create the user pattern.
Pattern training is not supported for hieroglyphic or Asian languages.
