PDF XMP Metadata & OCR

What is XMP

Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) is a technology, which allows embedding metadata directly into a file. It simplifies content information extraction for third-party applications.

XMP in ABBYY FineReader Engine

  • IPDFExportFeatures::WriteXmpMetadata parameter was added to API and specifies whether document content information should be written to XMP data of the exported PDF file.
    • The metadata tags written to XMP are those from the Dublin Core set.
    • This property is FALSE by default.
  • Normally, document content information in FineReader Engine is written to the properties of a PDF file. For PDF/A files, the document content information is always duplicated into XMP in compliance with the PDF/A standard. Therefor, this property makes sense only for PDF files.
