    I was going to use the TesserAct as an additional voting engine to an existing OCR engine. Does any have any documentation on how the API works.

     
    • There are several interfaces to the API. But there are no docs. I distinctly remember seeing a shared memory approach - just grep for "api". If you'd rather browse for it, get my first stab at docs:

      Untar tess_docs01.tar.gz (a bit over 63MB
      decompressed!) somewhere handy and point your favorite
      browser to html-102/index.html - you should get two
      frames with a lot of nifty relationships. Enjoy!

      To download (since sf won't let me upload it):
      1) http://www.repairfaq.org/cgi-bin/United_R.cgi
      2) Near the bottom, click on the button that says "list
      of all files available
      3) Scroll down until you see "Doxyfied Tessearct-1.02
      documentation" and click on DOWNLOAD
      4) Enter the magic number
      5) Be sure to download it from the RFO mirror!
      (Sorry, this IS a pain but keeps our BW under
      80GB/month :-)

      Hi All,

      I am in the process of getting my code built into the next version of Tess but for those who have asked for it. Here is a Windows DLL for tess:
