could it be possible to include conversion of pdf to tiff within the application? so that a user does not have to convert pdf to tiff first then using ocrgui to ocr?
by the way, looking great. looking for something like this for a long time.
Yes, it could be possible. OcrGui already converts images in BMP and TIFF before passing them to OCR engines.
My problem is only available time…
Do you suggest any simple utility able to convert pdf to an image format?
Thank you for your appreciation!
yes. right now, i am using a ruby code found on the internet some time ago. In principle, you can use "gs" to convert a pdf to tiff. Please refer to this: http://amanzi.blogspot.com/2008/07/linux-open-source-ocr-batch-processing.html
