   Y.  Sorry for my delay.  As I think more about this, would it make sense to parse the OSD
output and put the values in the metadata object rather than as "content"?  WDYT?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2696
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: ocr
>            Reporter: August Valera
>            Priority: Minor

> TIKA-2357 added support for additional PSM (page segmentation modes) for Tesseract OCR,
including mode 0, which is {{Orientation and script detection (OSD) only}}, meaning it does
not perform OCR, just outputs orientation and script information.
> An example usage of mode 0:
> {code:java}
> $ tesseract infile.png outfile --psm 0 -l osd
> {code}
> In this mode, the usual {{outfile.txt}} is not created. Instead, and similar to other
modes that run OSD in addition to extraction, the result is an {{outfile.osd}} file, like
so:
> {code:java}
> Page 1
> Warning. Invalid resolution 0 dpi. Using 70 instead.
> Estimating resolution as 212
> Page number: 0
> Orientation in degrees: 0
> Rotate: 0
> Orientation confidence: 13.73
> Script: Latin
> Script confidence: 4.78
> {code}
> However, {{TesseractOCRParser#parse(...)}} is [coded|https://github.com/apache/tika/blob/master/tika-parsers/src/main/java/org/apache/tika/parser/ocr/TesseractOCRParser.java#L437] to
only read the contents of {{outfile.txt}} (alternatively {{outfile.hocr}}) in all modes, so
mode 0 outputs nothing regardless of input.
> This is consistent with Tika's goal to output extracted text, but against the intention
of the user expecting OSD output.
