    When you say recognized, are you saying the OCR value?  If so, all you need to do is go into the field properties.  Under Data Types, there is an option to select Arabic language.  If you change to Arabic, it should then use the Arabic front to process that field

    Thanks for the Image File.  It is somewhat low quality.  i.e.96DPI but I was still able to confirm that we can OCR those value.  See screenshot.  So OCR font wise, we don't have issue.  Are you getting the same result?  What kind of OCR text are you getting?

    FCI is still FlexiCapture so it should be able to OCR Arabic font.  I think the issue is in your case you don't have the logic to capture the correct location.

    In that case, please create a case with ABBYY support so they can help you setup up FCI to capture the location correctly.  Arabic Invoice are not standard in the FCI product but you can create a custom invoice for Arabic.  Support should be able to help with that.

    Yes I am using FC For Invoices because I have unlimited layouts of invoices , but I think that the issue with Arabic number because I can read the same invoice with english numbers (and Arabic labels ) but I can't do that with Arabic numbers . I will ask support about the issue .. thanks Mr.Scott .
