General Information on Recognition

Note: Always ensure that the following options have been correctly set before you start recognition: recognition language, recognition mode and source text print type.

You may:

  1. Recognize a block or several blocks drawn on an image.
  2. Recognize an open page or all pages selected in the Batch window.
  3. Recognize all unrecognized batch pages.
  4. Recognize all pages in background mode. Background mode allows you to edit and recognize pages at the same time.
  5. Recognize pages in training mode. Training mode is used for recognizing texts set in decorative fonts or for processing large volumes (more than a hundred pages) of documents of inferior print quality.
  6. Recognize the same batch on several workstations.
    Note: This feature is available only in ABBYY FineReader 8.0 Corporate Edition.

To start recognition:

By default, the 2-Read button recognizes the open image. To change button mode, click the arrow to the right of the button and select the mode of your choice in the local menu.

Note: When you perform OCR on a page that has already been recognized, recognition will only be carried out on new or modified blocks.
