iOCR / vsOCR Setup divided into standard and additional languages

The iOCR / vsOCR setup containing the language and dictionary files of our standard OCR engine is more than 270MB in size. In order to make the downloads and the setups smaller, we decided to split the iOCR / vsOCR into a “base” and an “additional setup”. The basic setup, which is available through our applications, eg. AutoOCR, FileConverterPro, or PDFmdx now only contains a selection of major European languages and has been reduced to 127MB.

If all available languages are to be installed, this is possible at any time. The additionally available “exotic languages” can be installed via a separate setup.

iOCR Basic-languages:

Danish, German, English, Finnish, French, Italian, Catalan, New Greek, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Slovakian, Slovenian, Spanish, Czech, Turkish, Ukrainian, Hungarian

iOCR extende languages:

Afrikaanis, Albanian, Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bahasa Indonesian, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cherokee, Chinese – Traditional, Chinese – Simplified, Estonian, Franconian, Gallic, Hebrew, Hindi, Icelandic, Japanese, Korean, Croatian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay , Serbian, Swahili, Tagalog, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Vietnamese, Belarusian

AutoOCR – Installation requirements from version 1.15.3

With the AutoOCR installation from version 1.15.3, modified installation prerequisites are checked – if these are fulfilled, these installation steps are skipped by the setup and are not executed.

The following components are checked and, if necessary, post-installed:

If these components are already installed, they are not reloaded and only AutoOCR is installed. If all or individual components are not available or not in the appropriate version, the AutoOCR Setup tries to download them from our FTP server and install them. If an installation is to be made without an Internet connection, the setups of these components should be downloaded and installed beforehand.

The AutoOCR settings and the license are retained when uninstalling / updating the new version.

AutoOCR can be operated with one or more different OCR engines. The iOCR (vsOCR) processing is standard.

If only the Abbyy OCR engine is to be used, the download and installation of iOCR can be skipped during setup.

AutoOCR Version 1.15.3 available

Innovations AutoOCR Version 1.15.3:

  • New iOCR EngineWe replaced the previous standard iOCR engine with a new product – vsOCR –. This results in a better detection rate as well as a significantly better performance for multicore / multiprocessor computers. With the new OCR Engine, we now support parallel / multithread processing with multi-page TIFF and PDF documents. The OCR processing speed is thereby multiplied, if, for example, 4 or 8 cores are available.

Setup Option - iOCR herunterladen und installieren

  • iOCR – PDF rendering resolution configurableSince only image / image documents can be processed by OCR, PDF documents are always subjected to an image (rendering) prior to OCR processing. There is now the possibility to configure the rendering resolution for SW and color, whereby the default value for SW and color is 300dpi.

iOCR - Option - PDF Rendering resolution for b&w and color

  • Abbyy OCR – New default settingsBased on our experience so far, we have redefined the default settings to achieve the best possible recognition rate as well as the highest possible OCR performance. A single option can affect the processing speed, especially for multi-page documents with a lot of text by a factor of 5 or 10 or moreA 10 page document can be stored in either 10 sec. or in 5 min. depending on whether the “Recognize font formatting” option is enabled or not.
