Description

  • Can handwritten text be recognized with ABBYY technology?

Solution/Answer

  • “Regular” / cursive handwriting can not be recognized with OCR technology, because “optical character recognition” is only tuned for printed texts

Notes

  • Not all recognition languages are available for handprint recognition. The languages which are available for handprint recognition are marked with a special comment in the List of predefined languages.
  • The coordinates of the blocks that contain handprinted text must be specified manually.
  • Please see the details in Help > Guided Tour > Advanced Techniques > Recognizing Handprinted Text.
