Recognizing Handprinted Text


Can handwritten text be recognized?


Handwritten text can be recognized only if the characters are written separately ("handprinted text").


  • 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.
