Vertical or Inverted Text Not Recognized Properly

A fragment of recognized text may contain a large number of errors if the orientation of the fragment was detected incorrectly or if the text in the fragment is inverted (i.e. light text is printed on a dark background).

To solve this problem:

  1. In the Image window, select the area or the table cell that contains vertical or inverted text.

  2. In the Image window on the Area Properties panel (right-click the area and select Area Properties to make the panel visible), select:
    • Horizontal Script or Vertical Script from the Direction of hieroglyphic text drop-down list


    • Inverted from the Inversion drop-down list
  3. Re-launch the OCR process.
