Pdf, strange spacing Answered

Hey guys.

When i download .txt file, ocr is almost perfect.

When i download pdfSearchable, in a lot of cases, i get weird spacing between letters. Can this be somehow fixed?

Please note that when i use pdfTextAndImages, text is perfect(no photos, background ..etc)

Thanks !

    Hi Stephen.

    It's a known issue, it was already described here.

    In FineReader Engine it is solved with a special option "Tagged PDF". This option is not yet implemented in Cloud OCR SDK. Probably it will be implemented soon - I'm consulting with the developers now and will inform you as soon as I have additional information.

    I`m also interested in this implementation. Thank you, Anastasia.

    We would like to inform that the special option "Tagged PDF" has been already implemented in Cloud OCR SDK. The processImage and processImage methods have new bool parameter "pdf:writeTags".

    By default this parameter is set to autodetect value (auto). The possible values are:

    • write

    • dontWrite

    We hope it will be useful.
