Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-93) OCR support
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 00:52:13 GMT

Pei Chen commented on TIKA-93:
------------------------------

Have you seen JavaOCR (pure java ocr and BSD licensed): http://sourceforge.net/projects/javaocr/
I have not tried it out myself yet (looks like 1.0 was just released about 1 week ago).
I think a pure java implementation may be easier than forking another process (exec cpp) or
introduce jni dependencies.
If interested, I could give it a whirl the next chance I get...

> I don't know of any decent open source pure Java OCR libraries, but there are command
line OCR tools like Tesseract (http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/) that could be invoked
by Tika to extract text content (where available) from image files.
