Restrcting Mobile OCR letterset Android Answered


I’m currently using a trial of the android mobile Abbyy ocr engine.

Is it possible to set the letterset, or restrict the letters that are recognised?

    Yes. Not on the page level, but for particular field you can restrict letter set or even define regular expression. Please refer to documentation:

    Is that only for the cloud ocr engine?

    I'm using the mobile engine, and cant find where to enter the character restriction.

    Hello Mark! Yes, it is possible in Mobile OCR Engine 4.0 since Release 9 by means of creating the custom language via ABBYY FineReader 4.0. The details can be found in Help > Programmers’ Guide > How to..? > Create custom language.

    You can use a trial copy of ABBYY FineReader 4.0 to create the custom language. To request a trial copy, please contact the ABBYY office serving your region.
