Page Layout Analysis

FineReader must know which image areas it needs to recognize before starting the recognition process. Page layout analysis provides it with this information by identifying text blocks, picture blocks, table blocks, and barcode blocks. 

In this chapter you will learn more about the following: when manual page analysis may be needed, what block types are available, how blocks drawn using the automatic layout analysis procedure can be edited, and also how the layout analysis process can be made easier by using block templates.
